Green Party on Corporations
If President Obama had provided Americans with a truthful perspective on workers it would have meant a completely different approach to the economy. The president could have put forward a vision of a full employment economy and ending poverty. Instead he focused on declining deficits, a mistaken goal he put forward in his first State of the Union. He set the wrong goals then, and continues to pursue them. The result is an economy that is a disaster for most Americans, despite the president's attempt to create a false image of success.
Let us not reduce ourselves to the lie that we are consumers destined to combat an eternal, external enemy who is lurking behind the corner. This kind of outright manipulation of corporate and political elites who have everything to gain from a disunited, fearful citizenry must be seen for what it is: a direct insult to our human potential and dignity that we will no longer tolerate.
Centralization of wealth and power contributes to militarization, and social & economic injustice. Therefore, we support a restructuring of social, political and economic institutions away from a system that is controlled by and mostly benefits the powerful few, to a democratic, less bureaucratic system. Decision-making should, as much as possible, remain at the individual and local level, while assuring that civil rights are protected for all citizens.
