  1. Conferring citizenship upon companies by incorporation in this era of mergers and acquisitions makes about as much sense and can be viewed equivalent to conferring citizenship upon the child of an illegal alien born in America. In fact, it may be worse, given the fact that children are not usually sold, or merged – but that is the objective of many companies to increase shareholder value.
    At the very least, renewable application processes should be required of corporate citizens simply because they are not human, and represent tradable and exchangeable assets.
