The conventional criticism of the Occupy Wall Street movement – that it is long on complaints about income inequality, but short on proposed remedies – may need revision.

A number of “occupations,” including ones in Minnesota, have latched onto a constitutional amendment proposal that would deny corporations legal status as persons with full First Amendment rights.

“End corporate personhood” is their slogan. It’s been popping up lately on signs and banners at the Occupy MN encampment at Hennepin County Government Center and elsewhere around the country.
