• Yup. Corporations should not have the rights of people. When these were given to corporations, women couldn't even vote. The Santa Clara County V. Southern Pacific Railroad ruling gave corporations personhood… Or did it?

    According to the interviewee, the headnote of the legal ruling contradicts the actual findings. The entire precedent is based on a legal lie that was a bad idea in the first place. The courts never actually had these rights, but now that the Supreme Court has referenced a bogus ruling, it will be very hard to take them away from them.

    When corporations were originally created, they were chartered by the king for the greater good only. They automatically dissolved after a few years. They had to petition the govt and prove they helped the public good if they wanted to continue to exist. They were never meant to run our governments and lives the way they do now.
