A nice piece in the Greenwich Time from the Alma Rutgers, who has served in the town of Greenwich, Connecticut for many years. I appreciate her kind words about my book, Corporations Are Not People:
Jeffrey Clements, author of the recently published “Corporations are not People,” writes in the book’s preface: “In Citizens United, the Supreme Court overturned decades of precedent, reversed a century of legislative effort to keep corporate money from corrupting democracy, and upended the American ideal that we are a government of people rather than a government of corporate wealth.”
I’ve just finished this book, lent to me by friend Bob Wylie who heard Clements speak at the Greenwich Retired Men’s Association’s May 9 meeting. The book’s a must read for anyone who wants to understand how we arrived at this critical juncture and where we must go to preserve government that’s for the people, of the people, and by the people.
And here’s Tony Giordano in the Trenton (NJ) Times:
While reading Jeffrey Clements’ recent book “Corporations Are Not People,” I reluctantly had to take a break every so often to allow my blood pressure to subside. This powerful and timely book conveys some disturbing facts about the unchecked growth of corporate power in America
The most gratifying thing about the positive feedback I’ve received about Corporations Are Not People is to see how much so many people are doing across the country to, as Alma Rutgers writes, reclaim our government for the people. No easy task, but no more rewarding work for us all.
If you don’t have the book, yet, I hope that you’ll pick it up and let me know what you think. Ask in your local bookstore, or use any of these links:
