"Corporate Personhood Has Got to Go"

The Citizens United decision didn't come out of thin air. This video is a terrific look at the history of corporate personhood and political bribery and how the expanding nature of "we the people" has been countered by an equally lengthy history of a US ruling class obtaining more rights and powers for corporations.

The good news is that from the national level, with the Move to Amend coalition, Free Speech for People, and other groups working on constitutional amendments to eliminate corporate access to constitutional personhood rights, to the local level with towns passing rights-based ordinances to protect local economies and ecosystems, "we the (real) people" are developing more ways to take back our government from corporate rule.
