We Need A Democracy Movement To Fix This Shit

I was outraged by this concept, still newly-minted in my brain, of corporate personhood. Now that corporate power had been constitutionalized via Supreme Court precedent, how long, I wondered, was it going to be before all elected officials were 21st Century versions of Manchurian Candidates or Stepford Wives, mindlessly regurgitating talking points programmed in them by the ultra-rich…? Oh, my God. It’s already happened.
