"though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not its own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth" -Corinthians 13
"if by supporting the rights of mankind... I shall contribute to save from the agonies of death one unfortunate victim of tyranny, or of ignorance, equally fatal, his blessing and tears of transport will be a sufficient consolation to me for the contempt of all mankind."-Marchese di Beccaria

The “People’s Rights Amendment” and the Media via The Volokh Conspiracy »

under section 1, all constitutional rights, including the First Amendment, are limited to “natural persons.” Under section 2, that doesn’t include corporations. And section 3 preserves the “people‘s rights of freedom of speech, freedom of the press, [and] free exercise of religion” (emphasis added), which — given section 2 — excludes the rights of newspapers (and similar organizations) organized as corporations. So if the People’s Rights Amendment were enacted, Congress would have an entirely free hand to censor what is published in newspapers organized as corporations, what is published by book publishers organized as corporations, what is created by movie studios that are organized as corporations, what is distributed by music companies that are organized as corporations, and so on.
