Who are these “people”?!
The impact of corporations being treated as people impacts we, as citizens, more than I expected.
Since corporations are considered fictitious “people” they are protected under the same Bill of Rights as we are, which includes the freedom of speech and the freedom from unlawful searches. Utilizing these rights coporations can lie in their statements under the freedom of speech act as well as hide corporate secrets under the freedom of unlawful searches.
Corporations having the freedom to “lie” as they will could impact consumers on a grand scale. The use of artificialhormones could negatively affect the sales of a product but the corporations won’t have to deal with that if they are able to misrepresent what they use in their animal feed. Another example is being able to put Natural or All Natural on a label without having anything to base their claim on.
While it may not be a bad thing to hide corporate secrets such as recipies and business analysis data. It is a bad thing to be able to hide the inner workings of some processes. For instance if a meat company is using artificial growth hormones and any other lab created experiments to pump into the food that they go on to sell to consumers this could be detrimental to the entire consumer population overall. This could all happen without anyone being the wiser considering they are protected from searches.
I found it interesting how throughout the google searches of “are corporations people” that most of the search results were people concerned with corporations donating to campaigns. The majority of people should be concerned with how treating corporations as people affects everday life for normal citizens not a ego boost show-off of who has donated the most to which campaign. Yet, that wouldn’t make for good entertainment so I digress.
