This 216 page non-fiction comic book shows the dangers that corporations pose to American democracy. Americans have become second-class citizens to the first-class “personhood” of transnational corporations, who, in often-devious fashion, have usurped control from We the People – a development that the Founding Fathers never intended – leaving us with our rights and freedoms hanging in the balance.
Clear and accessible, this work describes the dangers posed to American democracy and offers concrete steps on how to take back our country – relevant for years to come.
