  •  Ultimately immorality has to be lawless. (2+ / 0-)

    Corporatism in this country is based on a lawless fiction - corporate personhood - invented by five corrupt judges that has nothing to do with the US Constitution, and in fact appears to be in direct opposition to fundamental legal principles by giving the rich double rights and exempting criminals from prosecution who commit crimes under corporate aegis.

    You bring up an important point with RICO.  It stands for the Racketeer-Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, but most large corporations are inherently corrupt today.  Drastic transaction and corporate taxes, regulations, antitrust actions, and criminal prosecutions have to be undertaken to restore democracy.

    Democracy is a habit, not a circumstance.
