Okay, so you've read my preceding post, and for whatever reason you've decided you can't read Thom Hartmann's book; there's no time, you can't find it at the bookstore, your library doesn't carry it (no surprise!), or you just don't care. Well, let me make it easy for you (unless, of course, you really don't care!). The following interview of Mr. Hartmann, conducted this past March, gets right to the gist of the matter; the reasons why subsequent court decisions have framed the judicial precedent as to why corporations are currently viewed as "persons" under the law. As fraudulent as it is, because as you'll discover it's based upon a lie, you'd think there would be rioting in the streets. But, I suppose, most Americans really don't care.
Please watch. Consider what this grievous lie means.
Corporate personhood is the root cause of most, if not all, of our social problems. We continue to throw money and resources at the symptoms, but to no avail, however the disease is corporate personhood. It's time to treat the disease. Once cured, the symptoms will disappear.
