Corporate Personhood 

 

 "I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations, which dare already to challenge our government to 

a trial of strength and bid defiance of the laws of our country." 
Thomas Jefferson 

 

I remember as a kid in the early 1970s seeing my local NBC affiliate 

run a statement that  in seeking license renewal they provided a public 

good such as the following education or public policy programming.

 

I haven't seen this in years.  It seems that there is no accountability for 

broadcasting licenses.  A few giant corporation now own our airwaves 

& cable bandwidth to sell us wars based on lies.

  

 

 

 

 

 

 "To talk about "corporate greed" is like talking about "military weapons" or something like that- there just is no other possibility. A corporation is something that is trying to maximize power and profit:. That's what it is."

- Noam Chomsky, "Understanding Power", 2002
