By now, you’ve probably already flipped out about the corporate personhood debate. Earlier this week, the Supreme Court ruled that compromising the electoral process by stuffing it full of dolla dolla bills is a form of expression, and that corporations (whose ability to fuck up America eclipses the action potential of any individual citizen) are protected under the first amendment.
Don’t get me wrong, I think free speech is the bee’s knees. I may disagree with every idiotic thing you spags say, but I’ll defend to my death your right to say it. That being said, do corporations deserve these rights too?
If they were human beings, I’d totally be defending their right to spend their resources compromising political interests. But they’re not people. They’re constructs, collaborative fictions which we created. They don’t get to vote. They can’t serve in the military. We can’t put them in jail when they break the law. They’re not people, I don’t see why they should get the same rights as we mere mortals.
I can’t just sit still while I’m so pissed off. So I made these posters.
Posters, in no particular order:
- Equal Rights for Corporations
- End Minority Oppression
- Consumption is Democratic
- Marriage Equality Matters
- End Discrimination
