Everyone understands that corporations are not people, but what does the term really mean? Jeff Clements explains it all in his book Corporations are not People: Reclaiming Democracy from Big Money and Global Corporations, a soon to come out revised edition of his orgininal guide to overturn Citizens United. It will have even more detailed instructions on how we are going to pass a constitutional amendment to overrule the Supreme Court's doctrine that corporations have constitutional rights. You can hear about them here first. The implications of corporate personhood go far beyond campaign finance. In fact, Supreme Court decisions on campaign finance do not depend on corporate personhood. They are based on a nebulous concept that "listeners" (human beings) have a right to hear whatever propaganda "speakers" (including corporations) can afford to spew on public airways and other venues. The overarching result of corporate constitutional rights are that corporations have found a way to evade regulation, courtesy of an activist Supreme Court. This threatens public health, workers rights, the environment, the economy and the sovereignty of state and local governments. In this show, we will discuss the legal and political issues involved in passing an appropriate amendment, along with strategies for overcoming the obstacles they present. This show was rebroadcast on August 9 at 9 AM PST/ 12 PM EST on the Star Com Radio network. Take Back America for the People is an educational nonprofit whose mission is to explain to the American public the true costs of corporate control of the US government.
