At the behest of our leaders? It's our leaders who act on behalf of these global corporations. It has been proven that our leaders do not represent the American people. Ever since we made congressional voting records public, our representatives have been bought by lobbyists. If they don't take lobbyist money, the vast majority can't run their campaign and get re-elected.

Unless the "government" you are speaking of is the "un-elected government" or the "deep state" that actually makes most of the policy decisions now. Those with money and power run the show, from our eroding rights to the media propaganda. The media propaganda has just jumped from tv to the internet now as well.
