Definitely sucks and the end is interesting. All about the votes for the politicians.

Basically big companies harvest subsidies and lobby politicians.

NFL owners hold cities hostage to build them stadiums with taxpayer money.

Who ever invented this thing called a corporation, why do they keep letting them run amok?
Corporation ~
A corporation is a legal entity that is separate and distinct from its owners.1 Under law, corporations possess many of the same rights and responsibilities as individuals. They can enter contracts, loan and borrow money, sue and be sued, hire employees, own assets, and pay taxes.

Some refer to a corporation as a "legal person."

I call this bs. Same actions as all of us but not the same consequences. Until we get past this definition and really hold accountability for all the disasters caused by corporations, it’s only progressing forwards. Interestingly, broader definitions include states and governments. But I wasn’t taught that part in business school.

If corporations really have the same rights as people! Then some of them need to go to Texas so some of them can be tried in a court of law and be executed.
