Letter to the editor: Time to take action against 'corporate personhood'
Placeholder Image
To the editor: The progressive destruction of our Democracy by "Corporate Personhood" has been a slow and insidious process here in America. Even though our Constitution itself does not mention corporations as endowed with the same rights as persons, corporate attorneys mainly have pursued legal precedent many times over for more that a century that has suggested that corporations are "persons" under the 14th Amendment. Now there are Supreme Court laws on the books that are giving corporations political and civil rights as if the corporation was a "person."
