Current thoughts:

The law says that corporations are legally people entities. With legislation favoring corporations buying/privatizing everything and anything, we are moving to a fom of feudalism wherein a feifdom is owned by a corporate "person" and we are subject to corporate rule.

What do you think? Am I completely off the wall?
Are you a terrorist?

NO. It's bad. The migration to such is quickening.

Well then you and I had better work on becoming nobility right quick. Either that establishing our own independant fiefdom.

establish* because I should learn english.

Independent too.

I don't want a feifdom, just a nice house and six bajillion monies.

But with a feifdom you could make six bajillion monies by having taxes, not even high taxes.

I suppose, but then I'd have to care for these people. I'd much rather just be an unscrupulous, corpulent dictator that opresses the people in similar a manner as farmers opress sheep.


sexually....

Baaaah.

2. There's alot missing from the picture to be feudalism. The treating corporations as people makes alot of sense and cleans up much of the legal issues surrounding assets and actions. It's kinda like the difference between a military's action and a soldier's action and how that distinction makes clear alot of moral and legal things. But more to the point, we won't see a cyberpunk world so long as the federal governments of the world have an active hand in keeping the playing field level. Anywho, there's alot more I could say on this point, but I don't think you're completely off the wall.

3. I'm heartbroken, but not a terrorist.

1) I usually use the term 'Corporate Fascism' to describe current politics, but I think feudalism isn't far off.

2) I can neither confirm nor deny that I am a terrorist.

3) I love that episode of Next Generation. I think I will watch it tonight, since one of my roommates bought the whole series on DVD.
