The Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision marked a culminating victory for corporate personhood. Now, Americans cannot stop corporations from spending billions of dollars to dominate elections. Jeffrey Clements reveals the far-reaching effects of this strange and destructive idea, which flies in the face of not only all common sense but most of American legal history as well. Most importantly, he offers solutions—including a constitutional amendment to reverse Citizens United.
