“And of the hundred dominant economic units in the world today, the hundred largest economic units — that’s the word they used was units — forty-nine are countries, and fifty-one are corporations. Now, you digest that for a second. What does that mean? It means that corporations are the driving force of decision-making today. And corporations are not concerned with human rights, they’re not concerned with human life, they’re not even concerned with the proper wage for the people that are working for them. So what kind of decisions are gonna be made on our behalf by this economic power? These corporate states, I call them. Oh, there’s gonna be hell to pay, as they say.”
