April 10: Corporate charter revoked

April10

Expanded quote:

“The time has not yet arrived when the created is greater than the creator, and it still remains the duty of the courts to perform their office in the enforcement of the laws, no matter how ingenious the pretexts for their violation may be, nor the power of the violators in the commercial world. In the present case the acts of the defendant have been persistent, defiant and flagrant, and no other course is left to the court than to enter a judgment of ouster and to appoint trustees to wind up the business of the concern.”

Interview on Move to Amend

Coleridge

Dan & Brian sit down with Greg Coleridge of Move to Amend. Greg’s group is part of a nationwide movement seeking to undo corporate personhood. This is in response to the Citizens United Supreme Court decision in 2010 which effectively allowed unlimited spending by corporations in politics. Move to Amend is working to create local and regional pressure on Congress to amend the Constitution. It’s a really great interview!
