What about corporate "personhood"? Could you post on that?

Sure. Won't be able to get to it today. But the gist is this: If you let corporations exist at all, they have to have legal personhood to do business. If you're not a legal person, you can't enter into contracts or, for that matter, be held legally responsible for anything you do. That means by definition that the corporation must have some constitutional rights - such as the right to due process. The question is, once corporations exist, what is the extent of their rights and why. That has to relate back to the nature of the entity, just as natural persons' rights relate to what it means to be human.

It will be a longish post. May take a while.
