Artificial Predators: Corporations, Especially Big Oil

For my money, it started with Ronald Wilson Reagan whose dirty backroom October Surprise deal with Iran — Iran! was just one of the stupid things he did. Reagan made a deal with people to keep Americans hostage in a foreign country. Two generations later we’re still losing GIs overseas to terrorists funded and inspired by Iran. We’re still fundamentally hostages ourselves, to corporations like BP and ExxonMobil. No mistake about it — oil, despite its destructive influence, still has its hands around our throats.

    You are right about it starting under Reagan, although he was just the puppet for others. A truly awful man, he senselessly sold out his fellow actors to McCarthy and the HUAC witchhunters and ever since he was consumed with defeating the evil Commies, nothing else mattered. His long slow slide into madness started very early, I think.
