Re: "Inverted Totalitarianism"

I remember reading this article before. It presents a very valid point in describing the United States, but it fails to take into account the importance of the "first-past-the-post" voting system in sustaining conditions here.

If you're interested in how corporations and mass media control the individual, I highly suggest the Adam Curtis documentary "The Century of the Self." It is possibly the best documentary I have ever watched.

Re: "Inverted Totalitarianism"

Very interesting. I might even borrow this for a relevant poli sci course for a research topic.

Seems like lefties trying to fit public choice insights into their thought framework.

Re: "Inverted Totalitarianism"

Corporations have always colluded with the government, but in the United States that process seems to be accelerating. Regulatory capture is the anathema of a true free market. A manifestation of this collusion between corporations and government is in unusually high profit margins. The Economist discusses this in more detail:
