In applying the pros and cons of corporate personhood to transbemans there are also different perspectives we can take. We can take the societal perspective or we can take the perspective from BINA48 .
Corporate Personhood - The Huffington Post
Note: Anna is correct that Moyers was wrong, and commited a crime against the American people by presenting this issue as an open debate. Because of the perverse nature of the arguments for corporate personhood it was equivalent to an argument for slavery or against female citizenship. As many have observed the balance of power is already skewed in favor of the wealthy by the use of corporate personhood(multiple acts of voting and lobbying by the same individuals without effective limit). Roberts, Alito, Thomas, Scalia and any other Supremes who decide in favor of corporatism on the greater issue of free speech will have committed treason against the people. It is obvious that persons who support such nonsense are bought, and are probably hungry for intensified fascism.

LVogt: So you agree with my point that corporate personhood amounts to unjust multiplication of the wealthy point of view? I would go farther and disallow the expenditure of unlimited amounts by INDIVIDUALS in pursuit of political goals. (ie: Jon Corzine's runs for senate or governor, or even for the hiring of any lobbyist) If citizens see something as important they should lobby on their own, no professionals! The Supreme Court decision that money amounts to free speech is heresy to democracy. Hannah Ahrendt, after the horrors of WWII, decided political life in a democratic state should be conceived of as divided between the eidos (housekeeping/ political economy) and demos (the realm of mature political judgment). This is a somewhat utopian idea I have struggled over decades to understand.(I may have embellished it with my own hopes.) Essentially though, she meant that there should be no question concerning the priorities of the highest general human welfare possible in any economy, and that only ethical and moral issues be subject to contentious debate. Operations to meet needs should be automatically implemented. The selfish focus on taxation and wealth accumulation, then, are mainly an alienated reflection of our inability to generate empathy for and trust in others. The definition of hate for a society is the inability to tend to the suffering of our fellows. Our entire public universe exhibits this incapacity at present.
