Growing awareness of 'corporate communism'

NBC's Dylan Ratigan posts at The Business Insider about what he calls “corporate communism.”

 today we find ourselves as a country in two distinctly different categories: those who are forced to compete tooth and nail each day to provide value to society in return for income for ourselves and our families and those who would instead use our lawmaking apparatus to help themselves to our tax money and/or to protect themselves from true competition.

Increasingly, media folks are noticing the Big Business-Big Government nexus, which suggests that maybe soon, we'll drop the myth that free-market policies are corporate favors.

If you want to see “corporate communism” in action, just look at almost any industry and you'll see Big Business lobbying for and profiting from Big Government. Some examples: apparrel, energy, tobacco, food, toys, drugs, health insurance, real estate, tourism, just to name a few.
