Comment: Localism would not ban corporations

(See in situ)


Localism would not ban corporations

but it would put limits on them so they could still perform their positive functions, while greatly limiting negative outcomes. I know some people rail against restrictions, but corporations are not people - they are a creation of law and government. If people want the advantages of incorporation, they should be willing to take more restrictions when acting in that capacity. The restrictions are mostly to keep them from shifting costs, using their government-granted extra powers to lobby the government instead of serve customers, etc..

Localism is for people who can still sleep at night even though somebody they don't know in a city they have never been is doing things differently. ("Localism, A Philosophy of Government" on Amazon for Kindle or Barnes and Noble ebook websites)
