Friday 22th of January 2010 will be a date that will be haunting the US and by extension the rest of the “Democratic” Western world. it was the day 5 Judges of the US supreme court decided that not only is a corporation a “person” it is a person above the law, subject to no God, no moral code but one with unlimited power over our live. Well, perhaps not here in New Zealand just yet but the US people are now subject to the unlimited funding by corporations National and International for their political candidates.
You can watch Amy Goodman interviewing constitutional law professor, Jamin Raskin on why this is a very bad idea here and just in case you missed it watch this excellent documentary about the Psychopathy of Corporations
Five members of the Supreme Court declared that a “corporation” is a person, not a “regular person” but one above all natural laws, subject to no God, no moral code but one with unlimited power over our lives, a power awarded by judges who seem themselves as grand inquisitors in an meant to hunt down all hertics who fail to serve their god, the god of money.
Their ruling has made it legal for foreign controlled corporations to flush unlimited money into our bloated political system to further corrupt something none of us trust and most of us fear. The “corporation/person” that the 5 judges, the “neocon” purists, have turned the United States over to isn’t even American. Our corporations, especially since our economic meltdown are owned by China, Russia and the oil sheiks along with a few foreign banks. They don’t vote, pay taxes, fight in wars, need dental care, breathe air, drive cars or send children to school. Anyone who thinks these things are people is insane. Anyone who would sell our government to them is a criminal and belongs in prison. There is nothing in the Constitution that makes this “gang of five” bribe sucking clowns above the law. There is nothing in the Constitution that even mentions corporations much less gives them status equal to or greater than the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of government.
I wonder why this did not warrant even a small piece in our main stream media or perhaps we need not wonder. It might be that they’d rather have us not know.
