Neofeudalism & Peasants With Pitchforks: 
Corporate Power Destroys Democracy
"In the present era of corporate dominance, where can serfs go to demand redress and financial freedom from the neofeudal system? Nowhere. The global corporations that own the land and the productive assets have no castle that can be stormed; they exist in an abstract financial world of stock shares, buybacks, bonds, lobbyists and political influence .. There are few opportunities for small businesses when the financial and political structures serve neofeudal corporate interests. Corporate power destroys democracy. That is the heart of neofeudalism."
- Charles Hugh Smith*
