We need to pass a constitutional amendment to strip corporate entities of their legal personhood

friendlyCat

The U.S. Constitution was written with human beings in mind. At the time of its creation, in fact, corporations were widely reviled. But a century later they were a commonplace business institution, and a century after that they"ve become our invisible government.
