This is what three-time Presidential candidate and populist William Jennings Bryan said about corporations exactly a century ago. This is what Presidential candidates should be saying today...
"The ﬁrst thing to understand is the difference between the natural person and the ﬁctitious person called a corporation. They differ in the purpose for which they are created, in the strength which they possess, and in the restraints under which they act. Man is the handiwork of God and was placed upon earth to carry out a Divine purpose; the corporation is the handiwork of man and created to carry out a money-making policy. There is comparatively little difference in the strength of men; a corporation may be one hundred, one thousand, or even one million times stronger than the average man. Man acts under the restraints of conscience, and is inﬂuenced also by a belief in a future life. A corporation has no soul and cares nothing about the hereafter."
--William Jennings Bryan, "People's Law" speech, Ohio Constitutional Convention, March 12, 1912, Columbus, Ohio
