Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens

Corporations have no consciences, no beliefs, no feelings, no thoughts, no desires.

Corporations help structure and facilitate the activities of human beings, to be sure, and their “personhood” often serves as a useful legal fiction.

But they are not themselves members of “We the People” by whom and for whom our Constitution was established.

— Supreme Court Justice  John Paul Stevens

from his dissenting opinion in ‘Citizens United’ vs. FEC, 2010
