Just put up some videos onto youtube, but nothing special yet. Just basic stuff so far.

Just saw these Noam Chomsky comments on Youtube, and I'm still always impressed by his words. One highlight,

"What is needed in the USA is change so that public opinion plays a role in public policy."

GENIUS

sorry for the comment flood (last one was duplicate).. re Noam chomsky on corporations, IIRC there is a documentary called "the corporation" and it was pretty boring but the main thing I took away from it was Corps cannot and were not designed to be moral, the point is to separate liability from the individual, and because they answer to the shareholders, the bottom line is all that matters.

(dunno if it was some other show, but illustrated by how credit card co.s got around state usury laws by all going to [wherever the fuck it is your credit card bill comes from])

about ford (F) how ironic they getting they nuts busted by the UAW

Saw 'the corporation' also. Good transition graphics, but generally a dull doc I thought as well.

Some chapters were contrived.

But they said 'Corp charters must be forced to include portions on triple bottom line' (ie people, planet, then profits). I think if that were done, corps would be generally a good thing for the earth, altho smaller businesses tend to have a smaller impact on the environment.
