This article reinforces the belief that humans are humane and corporations usually are not.
Humans are geared to help other humans, foster friendships and nurture family.
Corporations, on the other hand, are geared for making a profit. They too often look at the short term including how to cut costs. This may lead to dumping into the ground or river as happened recently in Virginia.
Sure corporations are a legal entity. They were created to protect its members, build a brand name and provide tax money to society.
But when Lincoln and the Constitution mention inalienable rights, they are talking about the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. These are the rights of humans not corporations.
That is why reversing the Supreme Court Citizens United case and voting for Senate Joint Resolution 19 is so important. Let’s take our democracy back.
