    Proudhon found that within 5 years of every revolution, the new state was just the same as the old state.

    A PERSON is defined …
    A PERSON is defined as a corporation by the “black’s law dictionary”
    The point is not if corporation should be treated as human beings!! the point is SHOULD HUMAN BEINGS BE TREATED AS CORPORATION?

    Put it this way, if you are truly honest about this movement, you will have to be against all concentration of power…..division of power is our Constitution in a nutshell….vertically and horizontally.

    Don’t make the …
    Don’t make the mistake, I am against corporatism, because it is essentially big government….but I understand that the “public good” is a farce, because we all have our own interests EXCEPT freedom of speech and division of powers…it’s the best we can get.

    Corporations and …
    Corporations and free enterprise are the reasons why there is a reduction in poverty. In case you haven’t checked, look up Hong Kong and Ireland, Look up Australia, the heritage foundation has been running an economic freedom index for a while now, it is really good…look at the source. All I am saying is that you will have to restrict all corps (bodies) of people….think about it!

    1. Even with “rule …
    1. Even with “rule of law”, many corporations treat their employees horribly. See: Walmart.
    2. Hong Kong and Ireland are first world nations now? I didn’t get the memo.
    3. Economic growth comes out of the private sector. No shit. I didn’t make a claim against this.
    4. Still, thinking that corporations eradicate poverty is pure insanity.
    5. The heritage foundation should never be used as a source in a credible argument, even if the numbers are correct.

    if you are associated with some group, go and vote according to your association but you cant collect billions and billions of dollars and support some candidate, there should be an equal limit for everyone to have the chance to be heard. limiting freedom of speech? no, vote according to your believes.

    Actually, NO, the Country with the freest market is Hong Kong. Also, Ireland has a freer economy overall….according the the Heritage foundation.

    I have studied this …
    I have studied this stuff, You are sloppily mixing rule of law with corporations. There is a difference between enforcing employment contracts and property rights and assuming just because I am for free enterprise that I would condone breaking the law, no I don’t. But history is clear, growth comes out of the private sector.

    That’s what I am …
    That’s what I am saying, so unions will be blocked, 501 groups, non profit corporations will be blocked…if you don’t keep the movement intellectually honest…it will not pass or gain any traction. You are essentially supporting the abolition of freedom of association. If You had your way, I can not give money to a 501 group that would advocate my interests.

    If you know about …
    If you know about American history, you’d know that unions were created out of necessity. Corporations are NOT responsible for the eradication of poverty. Workers in many industries used to be treated and paid horribly and entire families (including young children) had to work just to get by. Some unions have become too powerful, but let’s not on history. The US, with the most free market out of all first world nations, is among the highest poverty countries among industrialized nations.

    So Food for the poor, inc. shouldn’t get free speech? What about a small business that incorporates?
