    after-the-fact doesn't work, especially not with corporations that are organized for the expressed purpose of immunizing the participants against personal liability. Since they have no skin in the game, they can act as it suits them.
    Which is why corporations are set up pursuant to constitutions and charters, outlines of what the corporations duties and obligations are. But, if those charters are lax and/or there is no enforcement (citizens are responsible to enforce the provisions of national and state constitutions by hiring competent reps), then the artificial bodies will run rampant.
    How has it happened that our reps refuse to insure that the behaviors of corporations are consistent with environmental health and preservation? Mostly, that's been accomplished by focusing their attentions not on their colleagues in the corporations, but on the citizenry they are supposed to serve. Our legislative bodies have become filled with people who are like guard dogs that have turned on their owners.

    We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.
