The U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the Citizens United vs. FEC case has expanded the free speech rights of corporations. This is nuts. The “corporations as persons” principle is total nonsense. They are a special class that receive special treatment that is beyond the reach of the average citizen. They are, in effect, if not in law, super persons.
What passes in the US tends to pass in the rest of the world.
This is one aspect that the rest of the world needs to stop and say, sorry, but NO!
