Introduction

Corporate Personhood is the most significant legal term that nobody knows.

  • Every aspect of our economy and our democracy is impacted by the growing hegemony of corporations. Nothing in our society is as consequential to our lives and our ability as a free people to control the world we live in as is the doctrine of Corporate Personhood promulgated by the Supreme Court. And, you probably don't believe that this is true.... yet.

Questions

  • What happens to people's moral sense of what is "right" or "wrong" when they are given a shield that limits their responsibility for the actions of their enterprise?
  • What effect does the profit motive have on how people make decisions about what their enterprise should or should not do?
  • What recourse do states, municipalities and citizens have when an enterprise harms them, their children or their property?
  • What recourse do people have when large enterprises establish policies and make use of otherwise public resources that act to reduce the people's ability to earn a living and live healthy, productive lives?
  • Where can people turn to protect themselves from life threatening commercial activities?
  • What actions are taken by large financial enterprises to insure their access to land and other resources?

Definition of Corporate Personhood

In a U.S. historical context, the phrase 'Corporate Personhood' refers to the ongoing legal debate over the extent to which rights traditionally associated with natural persons should also be afforded to corporations. (Wikipedia)
