What you PROBABLY want to end is the allocation of ALL individual human person rights to collective "personalities" such as corporations. You probably do NOT want to take away "personality" (being able to sue or be sued in the collective name) << remember folks -- that's NOT just business corporations but towns, universities, etc. >>

It may help for people interested in the matter to go back over the history of how business corporations GRADUALLY were granted the same rights as other sorts of corporations and eventually most of the legal rights of "natural persons". It is THAT which needs a rollback to sanity.

Of course there ARE those of us who actually are against all corporate entities (of any sort) except one big one encompassing all of humankind. But I am willign to bet that many if not most of you favor greater decentralism than that.
