157 of World's 200 Richest Entities Are Now Corporations
This blog pretty much sums up what Earth Custodians have voiced for over a year now. That money and power are indissociable, and that while most people chase money to meet their daily needs and pay the bills, at a much higher level, wealth concentration is achieved for planetary domination. Although not specified, the 43 other entities might be the world's mega billionaires as most countries are utterly broke.
Nothing has changed since the middle ages. Because that is just how money works. People claiming that money will remain a social tool, and that there is no way to get rid of it, have never been reading the correct data. These people also will tag the failures of capitalism as "creative destruction" or "the efficiency of the markets", and when communism fails, of course communism is the culprit. Talk of a double standard?!
Creative destruction, sometimes known as Schumpeter's gale, is a concept in economics which since the 1950s has become most readily identified with the Austrian-American economist Joseph Schumpeter who derived it from the work of Karl Marx and popularized it as a theory of economic innovation and the business cycle. (WIKI)
There is no need for so-called business cycles to have abundance as death is what awaits us all. This is the only process that can be called "creative destruction", when our body goes back into the food chain. While our consciousness reunites with The One Source.
However, what abundance do we have now? And what about this current the business cycle that could end the world as we know it with the rise of AI?
Most people generally want to work for corporations because they are often offered health benefits and other perks, and those will defend corporations regardless of any criticism, because to them the corporate environment seems rather fair. Just as Elon Musk thinks about AI: if you cannot beat it, join it. The whole corporate sector gives its workers the impression of safety. Working for global brand names may even be associated with fame as employees identify themselves with the success of the latter. Corporations have successfully engineered this analytical transfer so far. So far.
As truth seekers, we just got even more data to understand why so many politicians are so easily bought and sold by corporations pulling the strings. Though we should not trust that the UN will do anything about it . The UN is a parasitic body and has never done anything valuable since its inception . It cannot prevent starvation in Yemen and didn't intervene in the Rwandan genocide either, despite the fact that it knew something horrible was brewing. Let alone environmental concerns and slave wages still rampant throughout the planet. The UN Charter is a total hoax.
Here are a few weekly headlines that will be worth your time. If you happen to shake your head in disbelief, you are surely not alone. What is happening is beyond anything fathomable, we are living a " grand tragedy in real time" and odds are definitely tied. This is not even worth speculating at this time, all we can do is to stick to our moral compass, spread the word about a money-free society in any possible occasions, and of course limit our spendings to avoid prolonging the "planned agony" of the system.
Earth Custodians will shift to editorials dedicated to metaphysics and "mindset transitioning" after the new year. Blogging about same pervasive meritocartic corruption taking down the planet is slowly ending -- and shifting gear is necessary as EC seeks to remain a Lighthouse in the troubled times ahead.

“The vast wealth and power of corporations is at the heart of so many of the world’s problems – like inequality and climate change. The drive for short-term profits today seems to trump basic human rights for millions of people on the planet. Yet there are very few ways that citizens can hold these corporations to account for their behaviour. Rather, through trade and investment deals, it is corporations which are able to demand that governments do their bidding.... https://www.commondreams.org/newswire/2018/10/17/69-richest-100-entities-planet-are-corporations-not-governments-figures-show
