Happy independence day!

There's a slight retelling of the american revolution to make it more global. Many years ago there was a colony of a world power struggling to survive in the face of exploitation by charted corporations that ruled their land.

According to Richard Grossman.

"Just remember, the Boston Tea Party was a protest against the monopoly power of a global corporation, the East India Company"

Massachusetts Bay Corporation (which was a colony that founded the commonwealth where I live today), the Virginia Corporation, the Carolina Corporation, the Maryland Corporation, the Pennsylvania Corporation- these were business corporations that settled and created the 13 colonies. They were dictatorships-there was no pretense.

So it's time that the american revolution be remembered world wide as a story of how a colonized people overthrew their corporate masters and declared their freedom (at least for 110 years until the new corporation started to wrest power away from the people and repeat the previous system of exploitation.).
