Are corporations getting more corrupt or is it just reddit making me cynical? It seems every time we take 1 step forwards we take 2 steps backwards in the 20th century. Corporations just have too much money and power in their hands that every time we fix a loophole/law they find a new one to break. I'm starting to believe that corporations are keeping us happy just enough so that we don't start a revolution, not intentionally like some stupid illuminati conspiracy but because people are lazy and eventually we will reach a point where corporations have successfully buttfucked us from every angle just enough.

Are things really getting worse or are they slowly getting better?
