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.

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

A manifestation of this collusion between corporations and government is in unusually high profit margins. The Economist discusses this in more detail:
