Yes, corporations are just like a person
No, corporations are not just like a person
Just jumping into this thread here after I noticed something that raised a couple questions in my mind.... I noticed that the votes are 16-0 against corporate personhood (at the time).
Let's assume this is representative of the perspectives of people around the world... not necessarily unanimously against, but the vast majority.
- Why would the supreme court go on and STRENGTHEN corporate personhood, when people are typically against it?
- How is it that a majority of supreme court justices would hold opposing viewpoints with the majority of people?
- What would it take to overturn a ruling coming out of the supreme court, if the people are against it?
I could go on, but don't want to get into the other tangents...
No it's not. Rights are not conditioned on whether you are hurt either.It is my place if it positively hurts me.
Imagine you are considering who to vote for, and a TV ad appears, and I quickly turn of the TV and say "sorry, you can't see that, it's from a corporation so it will corrupt your thinking, and you can't be trusted to handle it." What would you say?
