P2 Put Corporations in Their PlaceEdit
Corporations used to be temporary entities subject to the towns that gave them a charter to operate. Today they are given the rights of people without the responsibilities, consequences, or time limits of real people. By putting corporations in their place through some combination of limits to power and borader responsibility, their power and creativity can be channeled for the good of all. Instead of: allowing corporations to dominate politics and commerce soley for the goal of maximizing profit, at the expense of all else.
