Evidence has been uncovered showing how the corporate state operated under the dictatorship:

A government-appointed commission investigating abuses during Brazil’s 1964-1985 dictatorship has found documents that it says show [Michigan-based manufacturer] Rapistan and other companies secretly helped the military identify suspected ‘subversives’ and union activists on their payrolls. … Foreign and Brazilian companies are cited in the documents, including, most prominently, some of the world’s biggest automakers: Volkswagen AG, Ford Motor Co, Toyota Motor Corp and the Mercedes-Benz unit of Daimler AG, among others.
