Common Sense About the Roberts' Court Monster
by Richard Keen
The Supreme Court’s ruling in Citizens United v. FEC has solidified the doctrine of corporate personhood, that corporations are persons that have the same constitutional rights of natural people. This book exposes the progression of control of corporations by our founding fathers to the super-human power of corporations over their creators today.
You will understand the insidious progression of corporate power by legislative actions and the defining role that our courts have played. And understand the importance of Citizens United v. FEC to reach into nearly every aspect of our society and affect many aspects of our lives. The Roberts’ Court has finished the Frankencorp monster through the fallacy of Wizard of Oz logic under the guise of Original Intent and Strict Constructionism.
The Occupy Wall Street movement is starting to alert us to the growing power and greed of what is becoming our corporatocracy. The Occupy Movement needs a unifying purpose to highlight individual concerns. The root cause of these concerns is Corporate Personhood. Each complaint the Occupiers express has corporate money and power under the surface. One will never correct the complaint until the root cause is corrected.
Understand the shortcomings of House of Representatives and Senate resolutions for constitutional amendments. They might actually work to the benefit of the corporations and against the best interests of We the People.
Learn a more logical proposal for a constitutional amendment that will go directly to the heart of the corporate personhood fallacy. You will be reminded that corporations are critical to our way of life and prosperity; but they must serve the common good in return for their corporate benefits. Find an action plan to tame our unruly monsters and regain control over our magnificent creation—the corporation.
