The wisdom of President Obama is finally getting through to me.
I have tried to think of a substitute for CORPORATIONS – and as yet can’t find one –
but clearly we cannot be owned or governed by thieves.
So some way must be found to make corporations work for the public good.
This must involve some ways of limiting their power –
a. change the laws that treat corporations as persons
and create a status for them that limits their ability to steal
and make them responsible to more than their shareholders.
b. reduce the share of wealth owned by the 5 big banks
c. and make permanent for ALL corporations Presdent Obama’s call on BP to be responsible for the damages it causes – with teeth in the laws of the United States to enforce this.
