Corporate Personhood Is Doomed

Overstated, but a review of Thom Hartmann's
Unequal Protection: the Rise of Corporate Dominance and the Theft of Human Rights clearify's that corporations as person's was opposed to the founding father intentions and instead was a recent legal invention which crept in the back door.

Mr. Hartmann doesn’t fill in this blank, but his daylighting of the irregularity will be the eventual undoing of corporate personhood. Its alleged source in Santa Clara County is a myth, a lie, a fraud. Corporate personhood simply cannot now survive, after Mr. Hartmann’s book, a rigorous and sustained legal attack.

Sustained it will have to be, for years or decades or even longer: corporations will fight the attack bitterly, but we now know corporate personhood has utterly no basis in law.
