This is one interesting take
on what to do...
Ralph Nader suggested
we "...enact a Constitutional Amendment to once and for all end corporate personhood." Other grassroots organizations are beginning to jump on board this movement
Here is another organization with tons of information
about corporate personhood.
The only answer I see at this point is the free press doing its job. Even there, too many are advancing personal ideology in the name of journalism.
The problem with the "free press" is that they are a part of the corporate forces that are helping to carry out the coup that Chris Hedge's writes about in his article. There are 6 major corporations who own and control
nearly everything you see on TV. And there are 14 major corporations who own nearly everything you read in print.
The media issue is another topic all together, and I won't get into it here. There is a great book written by Noam Chomsky and Edward Hermann called, Manufacturing Consent. It is an incredible eye opener, and well worth the read. This is an article
by Chomsky that is a brief summary about the mainstream corporate news.
I also highly suggest
watching a 4 part video called The Century of the Self
. You can watch it on google video for free. It is by far one of the best documentaries I have EVER watched and learned from.
