      You know, limited liability and all.

      I'm sure many here have read Thom Hartmann's "Unequal Protection".  I am just finishing it.  It explains very well why giving corporations the rights of people in reality gives them far more power than any individual has. It is an extremely informative book.  I highly recommend it.

      Until we take away corporate personhood, we're screwed.

      If I weren't so busy with work and policy activism in my city, I'd try to start a campaign where corporations themselves campaign to have corporate personhood taken away.

      Intelligent corporations should campaign for this because ultimately, it improves the lives of everyone on the planet.  And it even boosts competitiveness by allowing corporations to focus on the quality of their products and services instead of being forced to work for advantage through cronyism.
