I think an active campaign to de-charter destructive corporations needs to happen immediately. Starting with Monsanto for their attempts to destroy life on Earth thru GMO seeds, and moving on to every murderous petrol extraction and pipeline building company that refuses to honor and respect the land and the people who live on it.
Corporations ONLY exist because WE ALLOW them to. They are NOT “persons” either legally or in reality despite ridiculous Supreme Court decisions to the contrary, and like all legal fictions human beings have created (anyone recall legal human slavery? We abolished that-we can abolish this too!) Human beings have the power to END them.
I am tired of protests, carrying signs, spending time and money wading thru endless court battles, reading about people dying trying to save the last of an old growth forest-and their murderers not even being CHARGED with a crime!
We are not the petitioners, we are not the children asking for a favour-we are the REAL people and these corporations are fictional beings that “live” only at our pleasure.
Are you PLEASED with them? I’m not. I think it is time to stop playing soft and timid with them and just clear the decks. No more corporations. Let’s get money out of politics AND get the legal fiction of “limited liability” corporations out of our planetary society.
Anything corporations were created to do can be done some other way-some way that is not open to such rampant abuse and manipulation by the unethical and greedy.
