corporations have no such rights. the people who are part of them do, but as individual persons. the corp itself is just a conglomerate of financial and private interests, and should not be allowed to throw its financial weight around.
Well it does depend on which system of law to which this applies.

Not being a legal person, but I understand that a corporation under US law can ask to be treated as a 'legal person' with certain rights.

Communist tools are usually either hammers or sickles... :tea:

Indeed, and the main use of sickles is to provide the food the blacksmiths need to do the forging.

So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

The SS grew out of the SA which evolved from eight beer hall bouncers.

Of course his supporters are saying it's all lies. It's like they think none of us have experience with guys like Trump and how attempts to expose them play out.

Of course your Donnie'd never do that dear, bless your heart, the cruelty of these evil naysayers is bottomless. :tea:

Even if it is lies, it fits well enough with other stuff he's said to beat on him with.

I'd love to see someone come out on the record though.
