It’s long overdue for We, the [human] People, to retake control of our government and governance – at least in those states that have the direct democracy option of the ballot initiative.
This is a first-draft proposal for a ballot initiative, stated for my home-state, but equally applicable to other states:
In the State of Washington, corporations are not people,
and a corporation is not a person, and corporations have
no rights other than those enacted by legislation,
explicitly stating that they are rights for corporations.
It’s brief, easy for anyone to read and understand, and would seem to be “obvious”. Please let me know if you’re interested in pursuing such a ballot measure in ANY state.
[Note: There are numerous organizations and websites already concerned with fighting judicially-invented corporate personhood, but I don't know of any efforts in any state to address this problem via statewide ballot initiative.]
