UPDATE: AS LEWIS POWELL’S RIGHT WING AGENDA DESIGNED, TENURE ENDS AT UNIVERSITY OF KANSAS (KOCH TERRITORY) BECAUSE THEY DID NOT LIKE WHAT A PROFESSOR SAID:
UPDATE: STATE GOP has Assaulted the Middle Class and Poor in 4 states = DESTROY education, health and tax in 34 US states.
KOCHROACH and KRAFT FUNDED State Policy Network has $83 Million/ Year to destroy and PRIVATIZE THE BRAIN WASHING EDUCATION OF CHILDREN TO MAKE IT FOR-PROFIT.
THESE CONSERVATIVES want ZERO TAXES on the RICH and MAXIMIZED LOOTING FROM PRIVATIZED SCAMS in education, healthcare, and environmental EXPLOITATION!
MAY 2011: KOCH PAID $1.5 MILLION TO BE ABLE TO CONTROL HIRING OF BUSINESS PROFESSORS AT FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY.
JUST LIKE LEWIS POWELL WANTED TO HAPPEN IN 1971!
KOCH = GOP GOAL TO BRAIN WASH OUR KIDS ON MULTI-NATIONAL CORPORATE LIES AND HYPE THEY CALL A QUALITY EDUCATION – WHILE MAXIMIZING PROFIT ON USING A PRIVATIZATION SCAM!
It is a co-ordinated assault against public delivery of education to create FOR PROFIT SCAM LIKE HEALTH CARE and spread MULTI-NATIONAL CORPORATE PROPAGANDA at an early age.
From below we know this idea of BRAIN WASHING OUR CHILDREN started with Lewis Powell in 1971!
MASSIVE FRAUD SCAMS – Like Reagan did in Health Care = 9,OOO+% OVERCHARGING INFLATION! In Education to BRAIN WASH OUR KIDS, more in Health Care, and THE EXTRACTION OF OUR NATURAL RESOURCES FOR LOOTING!
Lewis Powell MAPPED OUT THE TAKEOVER OF AMERICAN GOVERNMENT FOR CORPORATE CONSERVATIVES IN 1971!
HISTORY OF THE MULTI-NATIONAL CORPORATE PLAN TO TAKEOVER:
GOP PRIVATIZED CORPORATE TAKEOVER OF GOVERNMENT ALL PLANNED AND LAID OUT IN 1971.
GOP TOOLS AND METHODS FOR 4 DECADES:
1. GOP Think tanks like HERITAGE = The PROPAGANDA PROS that FRAME LIES
2. GOP PROPAGANDA Training institutes and MEDIA booking agencies
3. Wednesday morning meetings on both national and state levels = Role of ALEC
Source: Lewis Powell memo 40 years ago = Seamless system to change Americans’ brains
Lewis Franklin Powell, Jr.
Powell describes Chamber of Commerce strategy for the corporate takeover of the dominant public institutions of American society.
Historian Kim Phillips-Fein describes how Powell’s Memo INSPIRED THE TOOLS FOR CORPORATE TAKEOVER OF AMERICAN GOVERNMENT by creating these devices:
The Business Roundtable (1972)
American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC – 1973)
Heritage Foundation (1973)
Cato Institute (1977)
Manhattan Institute (1978)
Citizens for a Sound Economy (1984) = Now Americans for Prosperity
Accuracy in Academe (1985)
Powell memo created a major shift in American business culture, political power and law, marking the beginning of the business community’s multi-decade collective takeover of the most important institutions of public opinion and democratic decision-making.
LEWIS POWELL AND THE CORPORATE TAKEOVER OF AMERICAN GOVERNMENT AND SOCIETY
The Powell Manifesto of Corporate Dominance, Censorship, and Destruction of American K to Advanced Educational System written to Director of US Chamber of Commerce
By Lewis Powell, then corporate lawyer and member of the boards of 11 corporations August 23, 1971
Chamber and corporate activists took Manifesto to heart and began building a powerful array of institutions designed for Corporate Domination of America over next 40+ years. Causing shifting of values to Corporate CONTROL!
Corporations are under Attack to be destroyed or subverted by socialists, communist, fascists, and liberals.
An assault on the enterprise system by Communists, New Leftists and revolutionaries.
Left extremists are numerous, better financed, and more welcomed than ever before.
Powell spoke NOTHING BUT POISON AND NEGATIVISM WITH REGARD to liberals!
Worst are the voices come from “college campus, the pulpit, the media, the intellectual and literary journals, the arts and sciences, and from politicians.”
The most articulate, the most vocal, the most prolific in their writing and speaking are Professors that the media voluntarily accords unique publicity.
These “attackers” show up on television shaping thinking, attitudes and emotions of our people, but we own the media and can stop this.
“The campuses from which much of the criticism emanates are supported by tax funds generated largely from American business”… and capital and we can stop this.
We must CONTROL who is “on the boards of trustees of our universities” and therefore the entire campus.
He talks about violence on campus as an excuse for Corporate takeover.
Claims new leftist “spokesmen are succeeding in radicalizing thousands of the young.”
“Greater cause for (Corporate) concern is the hostility of respectable liberals and social reformers….views and influence which could indeed fatally weaken or destroy the (Corporate Enterprise) system.”
He thinks there was Campus “Ideological War Against Western Society.”
He quotes Milton Friedman of Chicago Schools’ DEBUNKED BILLIONAIRE TRICKLE DOWN AND LAFFER CURVE SUPPLY SIDE THEORY warning: “It (is) crystal clear that the foundations of our free society are under wide-ranging and powerful attack…by misguided individuals…”
His major enemy is Ralph Nader, a legend in his own time and an idol of millions of Americans and who “is aimed at smashing…corporate (blue chip) power…a great many corporate executives belong in prison — for defrauding the consumer with shoddy merchandise, poisoning the food supply with chemical additives, and willfully manufacturing unsafe products that will maim or kill the buyer.
Claims an assault was made on “our system of justice, and the free enterprise system.” by Charles Reich in book: “The Greening of America.”
He claims these few people “undermine confidence and confuse the public,” into removal of tax incentives (SUBSIDIES and TAX DODGES) through changes in depreciation rates and investment credits that benefit “only the rich, the owners of big companies.”
Claims politicians attack the TAX DODGES of the RICH to help the POOR!
He makes the CLAIM of BILLIONAIRE TRICKLE DOWN to help the poor.
Accuses his opposition of political demagoguery or economic illiteracy.
Claims setting of the “rich” against the “poor,” of business against the people, is a dangerous kind of politics.
BUSINESS AND CHAMBER RESPONSE
Powell claims Corporations do appeasement and ignore the attacks on Corporations because businessmen are NOT TRAINED in GUERRILLA WARFARE but instead simply produce and create jobs to make profits (TRICKLE DOWN BS AGAIN) and are good citizens and ANGELS of service. Businesses are so busy doing wonderful things that they cannot respond to their critics in intellectual and philosophical debate.
Setup corporate management to confront this corporate survival issue of protecting and preserving the FREE-ENTERPRISE SCAM system itself – far more than “public relations” or “governmental affairs” – designate an executive vice president whose responsibility is to counter-on the broadest front-the attack on the enterprise system.
Chamber of Commerce – TRANSFORMED FROM A FINE REPUTATION OF SERVING SMALL BUSINESS INTO AN AGGRESSIVE GUERRILLA WARFARE POLITICAL INFLUENCER, DOMINATOR AND BRIBER OF POLITICIANS!
Beyond individual corporations, many united corporations must fund a single organization (CHAMBER OF CRIMINALS) that does consistent planning and implementation forever to DOMINATE AMERICAN political power. Powell proposes corporations hiding behind the National Chamber of Commerce to influence Government.
Powell proposes using the hundreds of local Chambers of Commerce to influence public opinions and local elections.
Powell wants the Chamber to be a THINK TANK to PLAN AND PUSH THE CORPORATE AGENDA!
DOMINATION OF UNIVERSITIES AND COLLEGES
Powell says Colleges and Universities are the most dynamic and dangerous enemy of Corporations and most targets the political scientist, economist, sociologist and many of the historians faculties and even names names.
Powell says to filter out ANTI-CORPORATE FACULTY especially the personally attractive, magnetic, stimulating teachers that attracts smart students and exert enormous influence.
Powell says follow and censor the prolific writings, textbooks, and even their lecturers who publish far out of proportion to their numbers. GET RID OF THE EINSTEINS.
Powell says to replace them with Conservative Oriented professors that support Corporate WELFARE and TAX-DODGING!
Powell claims Liberal professors had an enormous impact on millions of young American students and he wants it ended.
Powell is afraid too many bright young men find Corporate Life offensive and distrust Corporations and their management and gravitate to media, government “staffers” and consultants, elective politics, professors and writers, and various levels of education.
Powell says too many students end up as “intellectuals” in regulatory agencies or governmental departments with large authority over the business system.
Powell wanted CORPORATE CONTROL OF ALL EDUCATION.
Powell says the Chamber must stop Universities from being hostile to Corporate Crimes – thrust Chamber and Corporate actions on Universities to TOW THE CORPORATE LINE OR ELSE!
Powell wanted to use University and College Administrators to bring faculties in line with Corporate DEMANDS and to balancing out faculties to reflect Corporate Needs by pressuring boards of trustees, alumni groups, and administrators – arguing balance, fairness (LIKE FOX). He wants to stress Graduate Schools of Business as fruitful to the Chamber including request specific courses and topics.
Powell wants Chamber’s THINK TANKS to have a staff of highly qualified scholars in the SOCIAL SCIENCES who do believe in the MULTI-NATIONAL CORPORATE system to author CORPORATE POSITIVE ARTICLES.
Powell wanted the Chamber to have a Staff of Speakers for TV and the Media including scholars to speak for the Chamber and Corporate Interests and he wanted full-time staff personnel for a Speaker’s Bureau which should include the ablest, most effective, advocates from the top echelons of American business that can exert a degree of pressure and insist upon equal time on the college speaking circuit.
CENSORSHIP OF Textbooks
Powell wants the staff of CORPORATE CONSERVATIVE scholars to evaluate all textbooks, especially in economics, political science and sociology – a continuing CENSORSHIP program to assurance fair and balanced treatment of our MULTI-NATIONAL CORPORATE SYSTEM and its accomplishments. He wanted them to insure critical evaluation of socialism, fascism, communism and other “isms.
Powell claims the civil rights movement was re-writing many of the textbooks in our universities and schools.
Powell wants the NATIONAL CHAMBER TO CONTROL High Schools with Action Programs – Ties in with CENSORING OF TEXTBOOKS AND CHOOSING TEACHERS!
Powell wanted CHAMBER to CONTROL THE PUBLIC a follows:
Powell wanted to tell the public how to think is more important for the shorter term using PROPAGANDA spreading speakers and writers trained to use the media to convince the public of the MULTI-NATIONAL CORPORATE AGENDA.
Powell viewed Television as the best tool for changing the minds of the Public.
He wanted constant monitoring and surveillance of the networks especially the daily “news analysis” that might criticize the CORPORATE CULTURE and “result is the gradual erosion of confidence in ‘business’ and free enterprise.”
Powell even wanted constant examination of the texts presented on programs as part of his CENSORING STRATEGY using Strong Complaints to the media by powerful CORPORATE INTEREST and the NATIONAL CHAMBER.
Powell wanted Chamber to DEMAND EQUAL TIME FOR THE MULTI-NATIONAL CORPORATE MESSAGES on all NEWS CHANNELS AND PROGRAMS – including “Today Show, Meet the Press, etc.”
Powell wanted Chamber to CONTROL THE PRESS AND RADIO using “every available means…to challenge and refute unfair (CORPORATE) attacks, as well as to present the (CORPORATE) affirmative case through these media.”
Powell wanted the CHAMBER to pack articles in Scholarly Journals using the PRO-CORPORATE Chamber’s “faculty of scholars” to “publish” and “lecture” with a steady flow of articles in a broad spectrum of magazines and periodicals including major magazines and the Atlantic, Harper’s, Saturday Review, New Yorker and to the various professional journals.
Powell wanted the CHAMBER so-called Scholars to PACK Books, Paperbacks and Pamphlets at airports, drugstores, and elsewhere to advocate THE CORPORATE LINE OF BELIEFS.
Powell wanted Chamber to do Paid Advertisements on the CORPORATE LINE OF BELIEFS in the media to build institutional images and the CORPORATE SYSTEM!
Powell wanted the CHAMBER TO RUN POLITICS AND GOVERNMENT because of “THE PAYOFF.” Powell claims the Marxists are taking over and the “capitalists” are have “little influence in government” (WHAT A LIE!)
Powell wanted CHAMBER CONTROLLED CORPORATE LOBBYISTS to CONTROL ALL ASPECTS OF GOVERNMENT at the NATIONAL and STATE LEVELS.
Powell wanted “consumerism” and the “environmental” concerns to be COMPLETELY NULLIFIED (HE HATES NADER AND ENVIRONMENTALISTS) in FAVOR OF CORPORATIONS DOING WHATEVER THEY WITH TO THE PUBLIC.
Powell wanted to use EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATIVE CONTROLS, EDUCATIONAL PROPAGANDA, ADVERTISING, AND LARGE SCALE CENSORSHIP to DESTROY ALL CONSUMER PROTECTIONS AND ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTIONS to change THE PUBLICS’ MINDS.
Powell wanted the DOMINATE CORPORATE “POLITICAL POWER used aggressively and with determination — without embarrassment and without the reluctance” by the CHAMBER.
Powell wanted the CHAMBER to CONTROL THE COURTS using an activist-minded Supreme Court CONTROLLED BY CORPORATE APPOINTMENTS. Powell called “the judiciary the most important instrument for social, economic and political change.”
Powell wanted CHAMBER to initiate or intervene in scores of cases each year including filing briefs – amicus curiae in the Supreme Court calling “this is a vast area of opportunity for the Chamber” in pushing the CORPORATE AGENDA “a highly competent staff of lawyers.”
Powell lied that MOST AMERICANS (he says 20 million of 311 million or 6.4%) own stock in CORPORATIONS calling them the Neglected Stockholders. Powell admits CORPORATIONS are managed by over-paid executives that (ANOTHER LIE) are job creators implying (ANOTHER LIES) Billionaire TRICKLE DOWN. Powell says the public provides the capital which fuels the economic system – LEVERAGED BY BANKSTER FRAUDS to PRODUCE THE GREATEST INEQUALITY OF WEALTH AND INCOME IN THE INDUSTRIALIZED WORLD!
Powell wanted the CHAMBER to DOMINATE THE STOCKHOLDER WORLD using the same PROPAGANDA AND CENSORSHIP used on the PUBLIC and in EDUCATION by publishing in CORPORATE NEWS MAGAZINES sent to employees and stockholders.
Powell even wanted the Chamber to establish a national organization of American stockholders as a PROPAGANDA ARM.
Powell wanted an “Aggressive Attitude” by CHAMBER and CORPORATIONS to SEVERELY attack anyone who attacks THE CORPORATE LINE OF BELIEFS using DIRECT “confrontation.”
Powell say “There should be no hesitation to attack the Naders, the Marcuses” who attack the CORPORATE LINE. There should be NO “reluctance to penalize politically those who oppose it.”
Lewis Powell said “American business…has demonstrated the greatest capacity in all history to produce and to (PROPAGANDIZE) influence consumer decisions” and CHAMBER AND CORPORATIONS need to sell the CORPORATE AGENDA THE SAME WAY.
Powell thought of Freedom as Free Enterprise and commingled that with individual freedom as did Milton Friedman with his CHICAGO SCHOOL LIES. He wanted freedom for CORPORATIONS TO DO AS THEY PLEASE INCLUDING EXPLOITATION OF AMERICANS.
Powell PURPOSEFULLY COMMINGLED FREE ENTERPRISE WITH CORPORATE FRAUD AND WELFARE in with INDIVIDUAL FREEDOMS AS IF THEY ARE ONE AND THE SAME.
Powell put on the other SIDE HE PURPOSEFULLY COMMINGLED bureaucratic regulation of CORPORATIONS with REGULATION OF INDIVIDUAL FREEDOMS.
Powell and CORPORATE CONSERVATIVES USE INDIVIDUAL FREEDOMS AS A SHIELD TO JUSTIFY CORPORATE FRAUD AND EXPLOITATION OF THE MIDDLE CLASS.
Powell argues that because of complexities of a vast urban society some regulation is necessary and then argues it seriously impairs the freedom of both (commingling)business and the public.
Powell pretended that private ownership is wide spread when most wealth belongs to 5% – many not Americans
Powell pretends consumer choice is real in a MONOPOLISTIC SYSTEM.
Powell pretends we have competitive markets with corporations competing over price, quality, and choices. When we have MIDDLE CLASS TAXPAYERS SUBSIDIZING MONOPOLISTIC CORPORATIONS, SKIMMING OVERPAID AND SQUANDERING EXECUTIVES AND BILLIONAIRES EXPLOITING SLAVERY IN ASIA AND AMERICA TO BECOME RICHER THAN THE OLD MONARCHS!
Powell and CORPORATIONS AND THE CHAMBER live in a DREAM WORLD OF LIES – MANY THEY TELL THEMSELVES DAILY!
Powell argues that TAXES are TOO LARGE ON CORPORATIONS AND THE RICH AND RELATES THAT SOMEHOW TO LOSS OF ECONOMIC FREEDOM – CALLING IT, “the socialist and totalitarian state.”
Powell wanted CORPORATIONS TO HAVE UNLIMITED “ECONOMIC FREEDOM: TO ROB AND RAPE THE PEOPLE AND THE EARTH WITHOUT “governmental restrictions on cherished rights.”
Powell says “business and the enterprise system” MUST DOMINATE OVER THE COMING DECADES AND THEY DID FOR 40+ YEARS OF PILLAGING AND ROBBERY OF THE AMERICAN MIDDLE CLASS!
