Please provide specific answers to both of my questions.
Again, the language you're using is totally contradictory. You previously asserted that corporations are incapable of possessing rights because they are nothing more than legal entities, yet you assume "they" are somehow capable of breaking the law.For example. If you are a corporation and you break a law...
How can a legal entity with no rights break the law or be given privileges?
Do you have any specific examples of this happening? What happened to the executives at Enron and WorldCom?...you as a person running the corporation can not be tried for certain crimes. The corporations are tried, not individual people, even though they are the actual ones who caused the crime. Why should they get special privileges?
A lot of small business owners are corporations, too.If a small business owner owns a company he can usually get sued for his own personal wealth. This is against the basic american principle of equality.
This is absolutely false. The stockholders have many ways of influencing a corporation's operations, the most obvious of which is withdrawing their investment.Also, the stockholders, who are people, are not permitted to exercise their free speech when it comes to running the country. So, in this case free speech for an entity [corporation], trumps the people [stock holders.
