Chances are you already heard about what the Supreme Court did yesterday. I offer a piece at Huffington Post about the natural consequences of corporate personhood, and I have to pat myself on the back for managing to work in a reference to prison toilet wine.
For context, below find the relevant clip from the fine documentary film The Corporation, examining the theory of corporate personhood. If you haven’t seen the whole film, you’re missing a great (if a bit overlong) exploration of the sociopathic behavior of the largest of these virtual persons. (Clip swiped from Boppin’ Billy Meehan.)
