Occupy Wallstreet, purchased government/congress, Corporate USA.....it’s nothing new.
(Excerpts from The Discovery of Freedom by Rose Wilder Lane)
"In the 17th and 18th centuries, Englishmen (with the King's permission) went out to make profits. It was not British Government that established the colonies; it was the Virginia Company of Gentlemen Adventurers, the Massachusetts Bay Company, the Hudson's Bay Company-trading companies. The East India Company went into India; Cecil Rhodes went into South Africa. The continental Kings planned Empires; the sent nobles and soldiers to seize land, and peasants to colonize it; their Ministers planned and "controlled" its settlement and cultivation." The Kings and Queens of England chartered traders and let them trade. British Government planned no Empire, and took no care of settlers. It intervened only when the trading companies had to use force to protect their trade."
"The English Kings were never so efficient. They gave the land to traders. A few gentlemen, who had political pull enough to get a grant, organized a trading company; their agents collected a ship-load or two of settlers and made an agreement with them which was usually broken on both sides. Landed in America, the colonists were never sure of getting the promised supplies; if the company's directors did not send them, the colonist died. But the directors could not depend on the settlers; they didn't work, they didn't get the expected furs, and the bound servents, especially, were always skipping out to live with Indians."
"The colonists were the rag-tag and hobtail of Europe. No statue of Liberty stood in New York harbor, saying to Europe, "Send me the wretched refuse of your teeming shore," but that was precisely what Europe sent. Starving wretches lucky to escape debtors' prisons, vagrant from highways and slums who sold themselves to slavery for years to pay for their steerage passage across the Atlantic, peasants shipped like cattle, shiploads of hungry women and girls without dowries, auctioned in the ports to settlers who needed wives."
"Living men and women create the human world. Everyone is responsible for the stupidity, the cruelty, the injustice, the wrongs of which he complains. Because no man can control another, and twenty-two hundred million human beings are living on this planet, a great many-one by one-must stop believing in pagan gods, and know the real nature of human life energy, before that energy can operate effectively to make a world fit for human beings to live in."
Bouvier's Law Dictionary

This fight with the people and the corporations is not new at all, and the Constitution protects the people from the government, but offers no protection from the corporations and companies that founded the USA.
