Agelbert NOTE: Must view video for those who wish to understand how corporations in general, and the Fossil Fuel Industry Fascists  in particular, used the Citizens United Travesty of a Supreme Fascist Court Decison to LEGALLY BRIBE the Republicans to Deny Climate Change. The devastating effect of Citizens United on Climate Policy has, without a doubt, accelerated the timetable of Catastraphic Climate Change damage 🔥 💧🌊 🌪that will increasingly make life difficult to impossible on this planet. 


Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, "Captured: The Corporate Infiltration 💣 Of American Democracy"

Politics and Prose

Published on Mar 9, 2017

http://www.politics-prose.com/book/97...

In Captured, U.S. Senator and former federal prosecutor Sheldon Whitehouse offers an eye-opening take on what corporate influence looks like today from the Senate Floor, adding a first-hand perspective to Jane Mayer's Dark Money.

Americans know something is wrong in their government. Senator Whitehouse combines history, legal scholarship, and personal experiences to provide the first hands-on, comprehensive explanation of what's gone wrong, exposing multiple avenues through which our government has been infiltrated and disabled by corporate powers.

Captured reveals an original oversight by the Founders, and shows how and why corporate power has exploited that vulnerability: to strike fear in elected representatives who don't "get right" by threatening million-dollar "dark money" election attacks (a threat more effective and less expensive than the actual attack); to stack the judiciary--even the Supreme Court--in "business-friendly" ways; to "capture" the administrative agencies meant to regulate corporate behavior; to undermine the civil jury, the Constitution's last bastion for ordinary citizens; and to create a corporate "alternate reality" on public health and safety issues like climate change.

Captured shows that in this centuries-long struggle between corporate power and individual liberty, we can and must take our American government back into our own hands.
