Conservative Philosophy has been, for decades, pushing the notion that Corporate Personhood/Citizenship should be elevated above that of flesh and blood Personhood/Citizenship

If you don't understand this yet, I'll be happy to explain it for ya.
The foundations of this notion lie with the direction of economics in Academia at the time with knowledge of the backdrop of the social unrest of the 1960s & corporate America's response to demands for equal civil rights & withdrawal from what was seen as the immoral Viet Nam war
See this article re Milton Friedman's proposal that a corporation's sole responsibility is to it's shareholders, Friedman is still an influential economist well after his death

Understand the actions outlined in this memo that the American Chamber of Commerce distributed to it's member corp. Ideas that include Media takeover & consolidation to control the message & flooding DC with lobbyists & investing in favorable opinion w/Think Tanks
Trickle Down economics encodes into policy the notion that Corporations will be taxed differently from flesh and blood persons. And policy that economically aids and empowers flesh and blood citizens will be scaled back in order to accommodate corporate interests.
You can see the elevation of corporate interests by examining the speech President GW Bush gave prior to signing into law his signature tax cuts in 2001 knowing that the vast majority of these cuts were given to the corp tax code.

Even y\the notion of tort reform empowers corporate shareholders in that it reduces corporate liability when caught acting in bad faith.
And the Congress' actions in response to the Great Recession of 2007/08 where fraud was running rampant in the Mortgage industry and even more so in Mortgage Backed derivatives in investment banking.

Conservatives in Congress worked overtime too bail out "job creators"
While main street was told to go pound sand.

When main street folks protested in Anger (Occupy movement) Washington responded by infiltrating that movement & ultimately breaking it's momentum. Yes, this was done by the Obama admin...no real prosecutions. Corp America was spared
This has literally been a slow motion Conservative Corporate coup, decades in the making. Taking over American media & loading it with favorable voices while flooding DC with lobbyists & launching think tanks to publish supportive opinion pieces that fly in the face of all data.
And I believe the end game is coming due. The rise of fascism and fascist regimes in Europe and America is a direct result of corporate, media and financial sector deregulation in conjunction with media/messaging cooperation with paid for think tank opinionating.
And I will go one step further and assert that the Clinton Administration and DNC went along to get along which is probably one of the key reasons why Donald Trump wound up being elected.

But...the REAL culprit here ain't the president. The REAL Monster...is CONGRESS
REAL MEANINGFUL CHANGE WILL NOT HAPPEN UNTIL WE CAN CHANGE CONGRESS.

Break the Lobbyiist money and influence machine

Yes, the end game is coming due & it's tentacles have grown to international proportions. The Meuller investigation will find & expose these connections.

Reactions will be quick. They won't go quietly & they have the potential to be deadly. Very deadly.

Steel yourselves folks.
