Tao Te Ching Chapter 60-3 Gods hurt no people
It is not only that the demons are not gods, but that its gods don't hurt people. (Ch.60)
"Multinational companies are controlling all the aspects of the world."
"My parents have been controlling me all my life."
I understand the feelings of the people who want to complain, but as we all know it is not a solution.
"Tao projects the hologram (=the world, =your life)." and "You project your hologram."
(Both are the same because true You are Tao.)
Nevertheless, nothing controls any.
Everything just comes and goes.
That's why Zen Buddhists use the concept of Inmo 恁麼, which means «what on earth», or it/thus.
Something "evil" doesn't have control over you.
Something that you think has control over you doesn't dictate to you, either.

Tao answers your question!
☞In Ueda, Akinari's «Ugetsu Monogatari / Tales of Moonlight and Rain», there is a story about a Buddhist monk who became a fish. The monk lived and enjoyed the life and liberty of a fish in the water, but eventually the villagers he knew well ate him while he was asking for help in vain. In Masuji Ibuse's «Salamander», the animal embodies the sufferings of a modern man. The cave capturing the salamander is certainly a metaphor. How would you like to interpret it?
