Freedom, remember, is not the same as liberty.

Libertas Supra Omnia - Freedom Above All

'Freedom, morality, and the human dignity of the individual consists precisely in this; that he does good not because he is forced to do so, but because he freely conceives it, wants it, and loves it.'
- Mikhail Bakunin

'If we do not do the impossible, we shall be faced with the unthinkable.'
- Murray Bookchin

are there any real life examples of a "Corporate Police State"

Omni Consumer Corp-style versions might be based on assumptions about how the "company town" concept can go exceptionally wrong: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Company_town

Weyland-Yutani-style versions seem more obviously based in the actual horrors of historical merchantilist colonialism.

All your political freedoms are belong to...um, you actually.

East India Company springs to mind, also belgian colonialism in africa, American south until the 1870s, perhaps mordern china and south korea...or if you share my (admittedly pessimistic and paranoid, but none the less accurate)world view; all of current western civilization to at least some degree.

Even with all the problems brought by neoliberal capitalism, characterising these as "police states" domesticaly is at least a huge stretch.

Now, if you specifically want to narrow the scope down to Western corporations vis-a-vis their operations in the global South, frequently involving direct support for brutal dictators in exchange for favorable access to resources/markets, you're closer to the mark.

I'll admit that most people in the west can live as they like, as long as they tow the line and remain employed. Unless of course you are lgbt or a minority, or a "political radical". The truth is that transnational corporations including banking cartels, old money robber barons, big oil, big pharma, Insurance racketeers, NGOs, arms manufacturers, big media, ect. have corrupted and gained control of most western democracies. Nobody will end up with a rat-face-cage(yet) as far as we know, but they continue to manipulate the world economy, our personal lives and opinions.

Censorship by proxy: flood the news with so much information that it is nearly impossible to determine or remember what is important as opposed to just blocking out the important information (although that still probably happens)

To be fair, this is probably true of all societies, including the real and hypothetical anarchist ones. As I've suggested before, there are plently of things people are not permitted to do, even in anarchist ideology. Describing this as forcing people to toe a line can be somewhat disingenuous.

It's true that the "Western" world is far from ideal in terms of racial, gender, and sexual discrimination, as well as civil rights in general. However, its also true that corporations have often led the way in promoting integration and civil rights. Apple's resistance to FBI surveilance and all the corporations expanding access to health care for LGBT people (see again the Human Rights Campaign report I linked to a while back; I'll dredge up the RMB post when I have some more time later), nevermind current business/corporate opposition to recent anti-LGBT legislation in some southern US states (campaigning against, threatening to cancel contracts and relocate operations, etc).

Again, I'm not saying things are ideal. I am saying it's more complicated than "corporations = evil"
