Jesus, Coca-Cola and Mussolini's Corporate State

Benito Mussolini once said, “Fascism should more properly be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power.”

“An Italian film has been pulled by distributors after the Coca-Cola Co. found out it contained a scene showing (an ersatz) Jesus drinking a can of Coke.” – Italian Film Pulled For Showing Jesus Drinking Coke

I dunno, maybe I’m just sensitive to this stuff, but I think the unholy alliance welding the power of corporations to the power of law is something the world should start to worry about.

Epilogue: Does Coca-Cola object to Elvis, Jesus and Coca-Cola (Kinky Friedman Novels)? I mean, a Kinky novel?

Monika Bartyzel makes an interesting point, “Heck, even the church isn’t perturbed by this, as reports say that the film was well-received by the Vatican.” ~ Coca Cola Takes Legal Action Against Film Where Jesus Drinks Coke

I guess Coca-Cola has better lawyers than the Vatican—not to mention a dismal sense of humor.
