Our world is in terrible crisis. Solutions to the problems we face are not being implemented because “We the People” do not have control over our own government.
Multinational corporations have become the governing institutions – determining for us how our food is grown and distributed, how we heat and light our homes, what poisons we breathe, drink and eat. Giant corporations largely decide what controversies get attention, how wealth is shared and distributed, what solutions are acceptable, who gets elected to public office and how the United States treats other nations.
Citizens have lost our authority over the fundamental decisions that affect our lives. We are defined as “consumers,” left to choose between paper or plastic at the grocery store.
We think it is time for this to change.
Democracy Unlimited of Humboldt County (DUHC) educates citizens about the antidemocratic seizure of the authority of "We The People" to govern ourselves, especially by corporations and other artificial entities through the legal doctrines of "corporate personhood" and "money as speech."
