Our nation was built on checks and balances why then do we give corporations and their wealth unlimited power? Once any entity gains enough power to infringe on the rights of others their power must be checked. We should come together and draft such a check on power in the form of a corporate constitution. It needs to be simple and elegant, one that mirrors our political constitution. We need to outline basic rights of the people and give corporations a moral framework with which they can participate in their capitalistic competition without destroying individuals and communities. Let's start writing one now.
