Revoke BP's Corporate Charter

Surely you've heard about British Petroleum's track record from the British colonial days through a litany of felony crimes. Being a "corporation" a privilege, not a right.

By now you also know about corporations being defined as "persons" by a corrupt robber baron era US Supreme Court. So, if a person is a serial felon, including negligent homicide, they "go away," usually to prison. They can no long do business, or anything else in society for that matter.

It's time to seriously consider taking the corporate privilege away from BP. And, in these days of internet activism, there is a Facebook campaign to revoke BP America's corporate charter.

I love this post. Not only do you address the issue of British Petroleum, but you also use it to illustrate the broader issue of the need to scrutinize corporate charters and to make them subject to revocation.

The charter needs to be on the table. Thanks for coming by, despite my spotty blogging lately.

Thanks for pointing to the Punk Patriot. I've finally had a chance to check out his blog. He's doing some amazing activist work.
