The Empire Files: Chevron vs. the Amazon - The Environmental Trial of the Century

Published on 21 Aug 2016

In Part II of this three-part series, The Empire Files continues the investigation into the battle between Chevron Texaco and Ecuador.

Ecuador are doing such great stuff. Lets hope Washington does not cause a coup there, or win with the financial warfare that they use to destabilize Latin American economies.  

This documentary is part 2 of the one I put out the other day and it also shows you how evil the corporations actually are. When Joel Bakan made the documentary, The Corporation, he asked a psychologist who was an expert of psychopathology how did the corporations compare. He checked it out and said that they ticked all the boxes for a psychopath.

Very intelligent psychopaths probably tend to rise to the top of society anyway, but corporations tend to make people leave their conscious at home. Most investors are blind to what is going on, and many companies, like pension funds, buy massive amounts of shares in companies without considering ethics. Indeed, it is written in law that companies must get the maximum returns for their shareholders.

We know from what we read here and in other places that certain sections of the ruling class really couldn't care about ethics. Many of these people live in a bubble and view the rest of us as second class citizens without any merit. They probably think poor people don't have the sophistication to feel pain and suffering.
