Corporations "Have the Most Gold"- Should They Rule?
Everyone's heard the saying, "He who has the most gold, makes the rules." Should Corporations rule? Or should the people? Are corporations "People"? Yes, they are made up of people, but do corporate interests reflect the view of the people that make corporations up?
