Corpses Escape Democratic Control…Again

Corporations have for more than a century escaped democratic authority in several ways. One of them is to shift decision making from one level of government to another — from the local to state, state to national, national to international. Another is to shift decision-making from the legislative arena to the courts. Both tactics were used by corpses here…and will continue to be used forever and ever and ever on issue after issue after issue until we change the rules of the game and abolish never-intended corporate constitutional rights.
