Lately, we're having more conversations about corporations whose behaviors have been outrageous, shameful, even criminal. These conversations sometimes lead to people saying this or that company is the worst, the most evil, the most murderous, the most corrupt or corrupting, the most destructive, most exploitive.

Some of the companies often listed include AIG, Blackwater, Diebold, Dow, Enron, Exxon, Fox/Newscorp, Haliburton, Monsanto, Walmart, and then there are whole industries-- the Military industrial complex, big pharma, big agra, health insurers, porn, anti-net neutrality giants, the RIAA music industry fighting downloading, coal burning energy companies, privacy invading, spying telecoms, auto companies building gas-hog pollution machines, corpstream mainstream media selling corporate and government messages,  chemical or livestock polluters, oil spillers.

Then there are the enablers-- globalism and its manifestations-- the World Bank, IMF, WTO, NAFTA, CAFTA and those who endorse and promote them, saying they are the only way. The IMF has been known to demand that third world countries privatize their water supply, for example, and Naomi Klein, in her classic book, Shock Doctrine, has documented how these orgs work with the worst corporations to destroy democracy and destroy economies.

In this world of bests and worsts, perhaps it's time to create a museum of evil, where the worst companies, industries, organizations are "awarded" with the honor of being named the most evil, most damaging to the planet and or humanity. The question is, which of the corporations, orgs and industries would YOU say are the worst, and why. And are there any which have turned around and rehabilitated themselves? Or once bad always bad?

In these trying economic times, when new ideas and approaches must be developed, maybe it is time we identify and deal with the real enemies of the good, of humanity and the earth. We are eliminating some companies, nationalizing others. Maybe we need to consider other reasons, besides economic bankruptcy-- like moral bankruptcy-- in deciding which companies will survive and which will no longer exist. Now that we've put these kinds of considerations on the table, why should profitability and financial viability alone be the only reasons to consider terminating or completely restructuring some companies, if they've done things that drastically change our world for the worst?

So please, add your comments describing the companies, orgs and industries which deserve to be enshrined in the museum of evil.

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
