Supreme Court ruling gives power to the wealthy and corporations

To the editor:

I was saddened to see the recent Supreme Court ruling in the Hobby Lobby case. The further enshrining of the personhood of the corporation does not bode well for the future of personal liberty. I, as a single individual, will have little power against the massive wealth and influence of the corporate individual.

The seat of power is shifting from government as the expression of all the people to the feudal corporation as the expression of the religious minority.

Evangelicals are unapologetically the main driving force behind American business interests with the corporation as the pinnacle of this interest.

Cases such as Hobby Lobby give tremendous power into the hands of the few, the wealthy, the corporations. Thankfully, liberty will long live in the hearts of men and women regardless of who is on top.
