4. So are you proposing...
that people wanting to organize and do public service work (nee activism) should design projects that aim to cost corporations their charters? The framing here is intriguing to me. Strategically it moves the goal posts for a win much closer than a campaign for a Constitutional Amendment. Plus it creates an endless number of targets for such projects, therefore making many possible wins (even after one or more losses), representing momentum toward a tipping point with each one (as opposed to an Amendment, which not only would take forever, it creates an all or nothing outcome). What are some ways that citizens or groups can bring a formal challenge to a corporation's charter?
