I left the US a few times and each time I needed a passport. When McDonald's went to Europe, who issued their passport? How about when GM built all those factories overseas? It seems to me corporations are only people when it is convenient. If I went after my job at GM and that job moved to Brazil? I would need a permit to leave my country (passport) and a permit to work in Brazil (visa) The BORDERS are not to keep Mexicans out! They are to keep us in! BORDERS are fences for real people. They do not apply to corporations. WAKE UP FELLOW SLAVES! Demand freedom of movement for yourselves and all others. END CORPORATE FEUDALISM!

A corporation is designed to give its owners limited liability among other advantages of law. Over 75% of Defense Contractor companies have had felony convictions against them, yet the companies are still allowed to and are doing business with the government. Individuals can't do that.

A corporation is an invented imaginary third person to act in place of the group (investors). The good part is that they are imaginary. The can be changed. Therefore, they can be changed legally to behave as responsible community members if it is mandated in their charters. The British East India Company, the most powerful corporation in history had its own armies and navies and conquered colonies on the behalf of shareholders. No corporation can legally do what they did back then today. But much more reform is needed, and can be accomplished.

I mostly agree with you, the difference is I see the same thing happening now. What is happening in Latin America and Africa is not ancient history. Multinational Corporations are behind the World Bank and the IMF. They force loans on countries that don't need them, and then put conditions on the loans, like "You must privatize your water and electricity." The same corporations that own the IMF and WB end up in control of the water and energy. So called third world countries are actually rich in resources, problem is it is hard to keep money in your pockets while you have a gun pointed at you.
