Expanding the collective consciousness
manifesting on/in/thru the web:
  1. ®TMark -- WHAT will they think of next?
    ®TMark is a brokerage that benefits from "limited liability" just like any other corporation; using this principle, ®TMark supports the sabotage (informative alteration) of corporate products, from dolls and children's learning tools to electronic action games, by channelling funds from investors to workers for specific projects grouped into "mutual funds." ®TMark is indeed just a corporation, and benefits from corporate protections, but unlike every other corporation, its "bottom line" is to improve culture, rather than its own pocketbook; it seeks cultural profit, not financial. For starters, see The Mutual Fund Model, Curation, and Frequently Asked Questions.

    • The Yes Men in Finland--WTO Introduces New Member, 8/30/01
    • ®TMark offers an array of significant Mutual Funds including:
      • The Corporate Law Fund -- The projects in this fund challenge the legal rights and powers that corporations have arrogated over the years. Many of these projects focus on corporations' status as full persons, obtained via an 1886 U.S. Supreme Court--SANTA CLARA COUNTY v. SOUTHERN PAC. R. CO., 118 U.S. 394--ruling based on the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which was ratified to protect the rights of freed slaves.

      • The Biological Property Fund -- The projects in this fund are aimed at corporations that scavenge the earth's biomes and human bodies for valuable genes, with only the most mercenary consideration for the long term social, health and environmental consequences of their actions. Some of these projects focus on the well-known dangers of letting corporations steer and shape scientific research. Other projects call attention to the way that biotechnology P.R. shifts public attention away from corporate damage to the environment and society by brandishing absurdly simplistic solutions, e.g. "better genes" that in fact only benefit corporations.

      • The Intellectual Property Fund -- This is a stable and reliable fund with a diversity of risk, specifically tailored to the youth market, and all projects focus on copyright and trademark issues. The Intellectual Property Fund is managed by Negativland, who have an extensive history of activism against copyright abuses and are very strong cultural producers in their own right.

      • The Media Fund -- For reasons of situation, this high-risk fund has tremendous potential yields. The Media Fund is managed by Andrei Codrescu, who has consistently produced oppositional cultural dividends in various contexts, from the poetic to the cinematic. His current position as commentator for National Public Radio completes his exceptional qualifications for this position.

HELP   EXPAND   THE   NUMBER   OF   PBS   STATIONS   BROADCASTING   THIS :
Tell the Truth and Run: George Seldes and the American Press
A Film by Rick Goldsmith

"Nominated for an Academy Award for 1996 Best Documentary, Tell the Truth and Run, the dramatic story of muckraking journalist George Seldes (1890-1995), is a piercing examination of American journalism. . . .
        Tell the Truth and Run raises fundamental questions about the recorded history of the Twentieth Century; about freedom, fairness and diversity in the media; about power and abuse of power; and about public citizenship and the democratic process."
        Learn about/help expand the PBS campaign to get more stations to screen this film on PBS television.

From Rick Goldsmith:

            If your local public TV station is on the broadcast list, consult the web page periodically to find out when the broadcast is scheduled. (There's other neat stuff on the web page.) If the film is not yet scheduled on your local public tv station, you might encourage them to schedule it soon. (You can find the name, address, phone, fax and e-mail of your local public television station at http://www.pbs.org/stations/ )
            If your local public TV station is NOT on the above list, you can contact the station's program director by phone, fax, letter or e-mail:
    • let him/her know you understand that APS has offered the station the opportunity to broadcast the Academy Award-nominated documentary feature Tell the Truth and Run: George Seldes and the American Press; and
    • ask if they have plans to broadcast it; if not, urge them to take another look; APS can send screening cassettes to stations upon request.
