A cap on personal wealth should make corporations democratic.

Nature limits resource hoarding for many reasons. In us it would prevent Rupert Murdock and Donald Trump from ruling.

When fascism comes (back) to Europe, it will be wrapped in the (EU) flag and carrying the golden arches...

The whole purpose of the EU is to circumvent national sovereignty in favor of corporations. Much easier to implant or bribe a few "representatives" in one body than each country individually.

That also goes for the US the perpetrators of all evil around the world. The neocon fascists and Zionists snuck in the EU unto Europe by way of bribing the leaders. EU was to make Europe peaceful and prosperous instead European standard of living has taken a nose dive, jobs are scarce and the people are told to tighten their belts tighter and tighter while a tiny minority like in the US is getting filthy rich.

Corporate law needs to be rewritten to eliminate the corporation's responsibility to put profit above all else.
