Big business intends to make the earth theirs. In the early 21st Century, corporations have more power over the landscape and its inhabitants than governments do. This power translates into pollution, turning animals into sales items, seizure of traditional First Nations lands, manipulation of the public through media, international free trade agreements negotiated in secret and defense of the corporation as having the same rights as a person. PLANS examines through verse uncontrolled corporate power and executives’ need for more at our Earth’s expense.
