Quote of the Day

Stefanie Khoury & David Whyte On how there has been a concerted attempt to grant a right to profit to corporations under human rights law while largely indemnifying them from human rights abuses that they conduct.
Corporations are not people, and there should be no right to profit. 

Profit is not property, at best it is a possibility of accumulating property at some point in the future.
