1. I think just because a corporation is made up of people does not give it the same rights as a person has. That would be like saying well the government is made up of people, so the government is also a person. I think corporations can be said to be one voice of many people that are a part of that corporation, but that’s as far as the “Corporations are People” part I’d agree was actually true. However, since the Supreme Court has ruled that Corporations are People, how about starting to put a few corporations in jail for their criminal activities that if a non-corporation person were to do, they would almost certainly go to jail? I think if corporations want to be treated as people, we should treat them that way. 🙂

  2. Not people, not human, less than…

    Corporations are artificial creatures of law. As such, they should enjoy only those powers—not constitutional rights, but legislatively-conferred powers—that are concomitant with their legitimate function, that being limited liability investment vehicles for business. Corporations are not persons. Human beings are persons, and it is an affront to the inviolable dignity of our species that courts have created a legal fiction which forces people—human beings—to share fundamental natural rights with soulless creations of government. Worse still, while corporations and human beings share many of the same rights under the law, they clearly are not bound equally to the same codes of good conduct, decency, and morality, and they are not held equally accountable for their sins. Indeed, it is truly ironic that the death penalty and hell are reserved only to natural persons.“ ~ Montana State Supreme Court Justice James Nelson.
