Working Together: Governments, Businesses, Non-Profits...

Separation of Commerce and State

Now that the Supreme Court has granted citizenship to corporations, now that Exon is a person and AIG is a person and Citibank is a person and Haliburton is a person, what is the point of me donating money to my Party anymore? If Exon could have financed both sides in the 2008 election with only 2% of profits, the Supreme Court has effectively nullified my tiny voice.

 

The Government and Corporations have always worked together, from Privateers during the American revolution to Blackwater and Haliburton,the government depends on Corporations to perform work and funding. However, the relationship needs to be better defined and more transparent and Corporations are not people. Whether too big to fail or too big to control or too big to compete with, Corporate power needs checks and balances the same as any other power.
