Every once in a while I hear a bunch of noise about Citizens United being a singular perversion about the ideas of liberty and free speech blah blah. I never paid so much attention to that controversy assessing in a reactionary way that the opponents will spend as much money as they like to defend whatever it is they want to defend. Just because they don't call it a corporation doesn't change matters. I roll this in with my growing skepticism about democratic aggregation in the Peasant Theory. More on DA later.
Apparently Justice Alito has saved me some trouble with his own snappy answer. Or was it Roberts?
But basically the snappy answer is this. Does the New York Times have a First Amendement right to free speech? Is the New York Times a corporation? Case closed.
