Re: “The Scavenger's Manifesto

I am really glad to find this article on the internet - I really enjoyed it when it came out, and this is a much more manageable form.

Re: “Seeking "Human" Rights for Corporations

Strange. Strange that the author wouldn't know that the 14th?15th? Amendment was applied to corporations (the one written to 'free the slaves' was actually used to empower big business and allow to grow much, much bigger...leading to the Gilded Age...and Eisenhower's warning on leaving office that we should beware the 'military-industrial complex.')

Stranger still that by the following Tuesday, only two comments have been recorded on this article. For well over a decade this paper was my primary source of news: it had to get really bad before I quit reading, and I wonder how many other readers left. I never really made the format change to booklet style - when the new distribution boxes were prominently labeled that taking two (2!) copies would result in a $1,000 fine!
