Every corporate entity is a conspiracy, in which two or more individuals get together and agree to maximize their power beyond that of the sole person. The effect of such a conspiracy is to create a power separate from the individual persons, behaves like a person, but without the individual responsibility of a person.
Most people know of at least one situation when a corporation declares bankruptcy and turns to nothing, while the individual members of the corporation receive "golden parachutes," houses, property, and other perks. And it's all legal. It seems that some corporations are created just for that purpose. Consider the big banker bonuses, too.
I don't even understand how corporate conspiracies ever began under our Constitution. Their meddling in elections is certainly skirting the edge of violating the "one person one vote" already decided by the Supreme Court in the 1960s. Georgia's County Unit System was found unconstitutional under that decision.
The hated ACLU or some other constitutional experts should now launch a test case to determine whether any corporate entity has rights under the U.S. Constitution before things get worse.
