This dumb question is about corporations, which legally are persons.
Should they be?
My problem with the current status is, after bad behaviour, nobody goes to jail.
For example, a certain Canadian bank was implicated in the Enron scandal. Sort-of prosecuted in the United States, it paid the equivalent, at the exchange rate of the time, something like $2.4 billion CAD.
For this, it appears that the bank was allowed to continue operating, admit no liability or wrongdoing, and charge the cost as an expense against taxes.
May I humbly suggest that it looks as if a corporation can purchase its way out of a difficulty and end up with no criminal record. Why then should it have the rights of a person? If nobody goes to jail, is the corporation bodiless?
Note: I have no special focus on this particular bank, but it is an example which made headlines. The practice of paying fines and not being prosecuted has been seen many times.
