We should make it illegal for corporation to hire lobbyists to keep their positions secure, and block U.S. voter initiatives and retarded stuff like that.
I just watched Supersize Me. The part of it that was most interesting to me discussed public school and what they serve now in cafeterias. It’s pretty despicable. There is a growing movement to require more nutritious food in public school cafeterias, as well as attempts to ban soft drink companies from advertising or selling on campuses. Such attempts are being blocked at every turn, by high-paid lobbyists working for the food industry, which is making nice profits the way things are, and sees no reason to change.
So, I thought to myself– where is the morality in being able to hire someone to lobby for you? Certainly it’s a complex problem– but I’m sure that there’s an effective way to block corporate lobbyists.
I hate corporatism, can you tell?
I’ve only just dipped into the political world in most ways, but I think this would be one of the best steps we could take as a nation.
