Thanks so much for the links.
Ending corporate personhood is something that is talked about often, It is perhaps not as exciting as chanting "forgive student debt" or "Tax the rich", but with its abolition many great things can follow. It is always awesome to find new resources of information on this topic especially because its so important, yet many find the concept a little hard to comprehend, and to find direct/concrete examples of it's ills. It has to go; a new dynamic between wealth and power must exist. The two cannot reside with only one group.

govern. Through historical and legal research, writings,

widespread awareness of what we called "corporate personhood"
- the corporate acquisition of constitutional rights intended
solely for natural persons that have usurped the rights of We the
People to govern ourselves. We worked on this issue before it was
popular, fashionable or newsworthy.
"Corporations are creations of the state. As we documented in
many resources over many years, they couldn't exist in any form
without the legal sanctioning of government. Since citizens
are the source of all legitimate power in any representative
democracy, We the People have the power to define corporations any
way we see fit. We the People have rights and authority." (my

I wish I could join you in the streets, too; but I'm not well. I

the people's cause, that you are in a good position to demand a
Constitutional Amendment to strip corporations of personhood thereby
removing them from dominant influence in Congress.
God Bless you all,
