    Wouldn't be a problem if there was a law against group ownership.

    It's more legality than anything else. And trying to comprehend someone who doesn't comprehend the system they're trying to deconstruct.

    For what?

    And voter fraud wouldn't be a problem if there was a law against voting.

    I agree entirely. Neither would the government and society be at the mercy of lobby/interest groups.

    You seem to think that I'm mentally inept, since you imply that I think democracy is a legitimate form of governance instead of what everybody secretly sees it as: a means to their own twisted ends. People believe in populism as long as what they believe in is popular. The only true democrats in this world are those who're completely apolitical. That is to say, non-existent.

    I won't accept any arguments about corporatism until the arguer has thrown away all items that were produced by a corporation.

    Yes, thankyou for your input, Retard #1 and Retard #2. Except this is about collective ownership of an organisation and how it should be dealt with legally, not the pros and cons of corporations.

    Well, you should post in a legal forum, not too many people truly understand the issue.

    The Supreme Court got it right. Treating a Corporation as a "person" is a historical creature in law. The US Constitution does not recognize the power of a person to sue a Corporation. That was not an issue at first, since many people worked for themselves back in the day. As more Corporations were formed, the Supreme Court decided to treat Corporations as persons. Or else nobody would be able to sue them.

    Corporations can be sued, and also be held criminally responsible.

    As to your question, I believe the Congress should simply amend the Constitution to allow Corporations to be sued, and the Supreme Court can quit treating them like people.

    I do not believe that Corporations have "first amendment rights" to begin with. But, as we know, they are allowed to profit from Porn, Violent Games, and other shit. Those who want to restrict Corporate 1st amendment Rights need to understand you can't have your cake and eat it too.

    I won't believe that corporations are people until Rick Perry tries to have one executed.
