The following is a Proposed Amendment to the Unites States Constitution. With the recent Supreme Court decision, Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, legalizing corporate free speech, it is time to consider an Amendment to the United Sates Constitution making corporate personhood unconstitutional.



PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION

AMENDMENT XXVIII

"No corporation, or artificial entity, including but not limited to artificial intelligence, robotic devices, or cloned beings, shall be accrued the status of human personhood in the United States. Nor shall such entities be entitled to human rights as commonly construe d either by law or common custom."



For more information on this proposal as well as the legal justification for it, see The Prisoner’s Dilemma by Melvin C. Hathorn. This book is easily obtained through many bookstores and many on-line sites.

The Prisoner’s Dilemma ISBN: 9 781593 306137

Interesting thought. But where did you get the idea that the constitution grants the government the right to take rights away? The constitution affirms God given individual rights and bans the government from taking those rights away. Under your proposal could not the government ban the free speech of entities such as the Democratic and Republican Parties and ban them from advertising for the candidates? Does this not remove and contradict the rights of state and local governments as stated within the document? What about the artificial entities known as books, newspapers, broadcasting networks, the internet? …and lastly, does it not also remove the rights of the artificial entity known as “We the People.”? The sole control of free speech belongs to the individual. You can listen, or not listen, you can agree, or disagree with what is being said. Alas. if only everyone would agree with me, and say only what I wish to hear, what a far better world this would be. Then again, perhaps not. Thank God for the constitution as is, for it is only God and the constitution that stand between us and the slavery of tyranny.
