corporatOCRACY | Corporatism meets Democracy; Wall Street meets Main Street. Twitter account @corporat_OCRACY.
corporatOCRACY is a brand new tool allowing the public to utilize the collective wisdom of an informed citizenry, wielding it as a weapon against crony capitalism. The goal is to allow consumers to quickly review corporations in a matter of moments, thus deciding whether or not to boycott or spend their money with each corporation. It also allows activists and groups to organize in a central location.
The site depends on crowdsourcing; we rely on our visitors to comment and supply any missing, incomplete, or invalid information (i.e. if the corporation has an official Facebook or Twitter page we haven’t listed).
To be clear: we are not against capitalism. Real capitalism, that is. Real capitalism is free markets, without the government picking winners and losers, and granting corporations special privileges with taxpayer money. What we are against is corporatism.
Our first order of business was to add all Fortune 100 corporations to the site. Next on the game plan is to add all Fortune 500 corporations, as well as other corporations of interest.
