This is why Nixon appointed Powell to the SC. If this memo was discovered prior to nomination, approval by Senate would have been problematic at least.

40 Years Since “Powell Memo” Laid out Corporate Agenda | Accuracy.Org

"Under the guise of defeating attacks on ‘free enterprise,’ Lewis Powell’s memo to the U.S. Chamber clearly outlined a comprehensive framework by which corporate interests could create long-term shifts in culture, law and ultimately policy to consolidate corporate power and minimize the risk of democracy interfering with their agenda. Groups embracing Powell’s strategy have indeed fundamentally altered our nation. The 1978 First National Bank of Boston v. Bellotti ruling (creating a corporate right to influence ballot questions) to the 2010 Citizens United v. FEC ruling (allowing unlimited corporate electioneering) are among the notable results, but most legal and political victories resulted from decades of patient work to shift popular opinion and culture."
