The Rise of Corporate Domination and the Theft of Human Rights
Thom Hartmann, author, national talk show host and media activist.
The Green Mountain Global Forum will present Thom Hartmann, author
of Unequal Protection: The rise of corporate dominance and theft
of human rights. The presentation will focus on the themes developed
in this work and will explore how democracy in America and worldwide
has been eroded by unaccountable corporate power. The issue of "Corporate
Personhood" and the extension of the Bill of Rights to corporations
has been part of American jurisprudence for over 120 years, and is
the subject of cases now pending before the United States Supreme
Court. Hartmann will address how current corporate structures encourage
destructive behavior and offers alternatives.
