The ghost of many criminal decisions made throughout the years has resulted in the annihilation of the planet, and the overbearing illegal influence of global-corporations that has now reached the point of impossibility for ordinary people and the end of natural life on the earth.
Corporations have been around seemingly forever. The ships that first arrived in America were commissioned by a private corporation. In those days corporations were routinely formed to accomplish particular things, after which they were officially dissolved. As time moved on corporations sought and received 'the right to exist' in perpetuity (basically they no longer had to die).
By 1886, the railroads had established: “it was "well settled" that "corporations are persons within the provisions of the Fourteenth Amendment." Persons that is: that unlike people did not have responsibilities nor did corporations have to die, as every person on the planet does.
By 1906: “Having blocked unlawful seizures of corporate property, the court went on to shield companies from other kinds of intrusion. Writing for the majority, Justice Henry Billings Brown found that corporations, like people, are protected from unreasonable searches and seizures under the Fourth Amendment (although the Fifth Amendment protection against self-incrimination did not apply).”
2010 (Citizens United v.FEC): “In the run up to the 2008 election, the Federal Elections Commission blocked the conservative nonprofit Citizens United from airing a film about Hillary Clinton based on a law barring companies from using their funds for "electioneering communications" within 30 days of a primary or 60 days of a general election. The organization sued, arguing that, because people's campaign donations are a protected form of speech (see Buckley v Valeo) and corporations and people enjoy the same legal rights, the government can't limit a corporation's independent political donations. The Supreme Court agreed. The Citizens United ruling may be the most sweeping expansion of corporate personhood to date.”
What has lately been at issue is the so-called right of corporations to become nation-states in their own right, immune from the opinions, actions, laws or responsibilities of the people they would control by taking over existing nation-states. It is against this backdrop that this comment is being made.

Horowitz finds this whole issue “absurd”, whereas it is he and his so-called defense of obscenely excessive corporate “rights” that have brought about the continuing destruction of most of the planet.
Why are corporations allowed to rape the earth for free, while they charge us all for what they steal, while they murder nature in the process?
The real issue here is that the supposed U.S. Supreme Court exceeded it's bounds and violated the rights of the people of the U.S. (and the world) by granting corporations so many illegal “rights” that they have now nearly killed everything needed to allow the planet to survive.
If any political-body were to be dissolved, it should be the completely-criminal U.S. Supreme Court that is and has been responsible for the global creation of the monstrous-obscenity of global-corporations that have raped, pillaged and plundered the entire planet since these “global-corporations” were first granted person-hood! This is truly the blinded “THINKER” above, who is unconsciously playing with the fires of life, that will destroy us and the earth if people do not force their removal from this government.
