Henry Kissinger once said:

Who controls the food supply
controls the people;

who controls the energy
can control whole continents;

who controls the money
can control the world.

We know that business has a trend towards consolidation over time. Corporations absorb each other, and the "ecology" goes from one of diverse many to uniform few. We also know that business-as-conventional cares primarily for one thing: ever increasing profits and dominance over their market.

We know that an increasingly smaller number of powerful trans-border corporations control our food, energy and money.

Dramatic conspiracy theories aside, shouldn't we start really looking at just how few corporations control how many aspects of our lives on this little planet? And what their strategies are? And how to mitigate those who are not beneficial to our future?

Surely at some point, the issues at hand can no longer just be dismissed as harmless profits?
