    Corporations started the US government. In the beginning, starting with Jamestown, corporations were a form of imperial colonial government.

    English colonialism was literally a joint stock operation funded by absentee owner/investors.

    They developed the colonial economy to the point of independence, and then formed an independent government to carry on their work. Corporations formed the US government as a republic in their image. A republic is a corporate model of government. The Congress is a form of corporate board.

    The USA is a corporate (i.e. fascist) constitutional republic. There has never been a moment when the US was not fascist. The USA was the first fascist country.

    Hitler and Mussolini were trying to copy the USA. They loved the part about genocidal ethnic cleansing, and got that part down pretty good, but they got the rule-of-law thing wrong. WWII proved that capitalism prefers rule-of-law over dictatorship. Capitalism needs a constitutional law-based government to protect investments via contract enforcement. Capitalists love rule-of-law because investors are not safe without rule-of-law....

    In the current international phase of capitalism we find capitalists all over the world attempting to implement new extra-national court systems that can arbitrate contract disputes between corporations formed in different countries. These are not international courts working among the nation states; they are designed as corporate courts working as arbiters between corporations and are formed by treaty and design to supersede any national courts. The corporations are becoming larger and outliving the nation states they sprung up in. Governments are the manure pile that corporations sprout from and are nurtured by. The nation states are akin to corporate placentas that nurture the capitalist class until it is unbound by the arbitrary national borders. When the training wheels come off and the corporate class supersedes the nation they find themselves still wanting rule-of-law and work to establish extra-national treaty courts like NAFTA.
