Corporations have hierarchies. CEO, middle management, specialization. Human resource departments for hiring and firing. Resumes. Job postings. etc. All standard liberal stuff. Loosely based on how Universities (Liberal Arts) were structured in the 19th century if I remember right, as the industrial revolution came about. (Universities were the largest institutions for centuries)

 Human hierarchies though. I mean, you had pharoahs and kings, structures like that. Religious leaders and their priests and stuff. Then universities. And corporations that make profit were around since the middle ages but I think the industrial revolution really made some mega huge ones and all of the mergers in the late 1990s to today have resulted in very few corporations owning a lot of the planet.

Bill Clinton introduced private prisons, privatized the internet in 1993. Trump increase private prisons, gave more power to the private internet suppliers.
They’re like a continuum.
The way Trump handled the border is a very Bill Clinton-esque thing. But Clinton wasn’t anything special there. Trump did it. Obama did it. Bush did it.
Big difference is: Trump made a HUGE fuss about it.

That’s why they hated him: He was just like them, but naked.
