The corporations (USA inc, Canada inc, etc) presume themselves to be above us because everyone consents to it. As citizens we give them their power. As the people it is we who hold all the power. We need to stop consenting to being citizens with only civil liberties (privileges) and reoccupy our "We the People" status to regain the rights we have given away. The ONLY sovereignty a state can possess is borrowed from it's people. Once removed, the state ceases to exist.
