While trying to maintain an overall positive outlook and message, we can not pretend that the forty thousand human beings that die every single day from the effects of grinding poverty is none of our concern while we imagine ourselves living like rock stars from the proceeds of the mass appreciation of our ego fuelled personal expression, but rather find it somewhat amusing how centralize control of resources is portrayed and perceived to be a bad thing, unless that is, from an anonymous, unelected and unaccountable boardroom (the certain and inevitable outcome of western capitalism)
Since corporate owned or sponsored media must by definition promote mediocre conformity in order to avoid offence and attain maximum appeal, we hope to present an alternative platform for otherwise under exposed sincere content which may not suit the whims of fashion or doctrines of the status quo.

"Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of State and corporate power."
~Benito Mussolini (1883-1945)
"Corporations have at different times so far been unable to distinguish freedom of speech from freedom of lying that their freedom has to be curbed."
~Carl Becker (1898-1956)
"When we lose our individual independence in the corporateness of a mass movement, we find a new freedom; freedom to hate, bully, lie, torture, murder and betray without shame and remorse. Herein undoubtedly lies part of the attractiveness of a mass movement."
~Eric Hoffer (1902-1983)
"I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. ...corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed."
~Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)
"Most people in our country, and apparently most people in the "developed" world, have given proxies to the corporations to produce and provide all of their food, clothing, and shelter. Moreover, they are rapidly giving proxies to corporations or governments to provide entertainment, education, child care, care of the sick and the elderly, and many other kinds of "service" that once were carried on informally and inexpensively by individuals or households or communities."
~Wendell Berry (1934-)
