Resolution to ban corporate personhood introduced in Vermont

Vermont was also the first state to legalize gay unions. Things have a way of starting there. Corporate personhood is malignant. Corporations get all the benefits of citizenship but none of the responsibilities. It should be abolished.

  1. Did you see the story about the woman who is going to marry a corporation to protest the notion of corporate personhood? From a Green Party press release:

    “One year ago on January 21, 2010, the Supreme Court of the United States reaffirmed that corporations have the same constitutional rights as people (Citizens United v FEC). In commemoration of that decision there will commence a national search for the ideal corporate groom for a mere mortal, Ms. Sarah “echo” Steiner. Ms. Steiner has made it clear that she intends to take the Supreme Court at its word and honor her marriage when she finds a suitable candidate.

    Members of the press are cordially invited to join the Bride as she formally announces her intention to seek a corporate partner and to unite one heart and one corporate charter in love forever (or not). A press conference will kick off the search for a corporate groom on Saturday, January 22, 2011.”
