Corporations versus Human Beings

Whenever anyone proposes limits on advertising, you can bet a “freedom of speech” defence will be made. But free speech is for human beings. Corporations are not human beings. Corporations are legally created entities that used to be given charters for a limited time and a limited purpose. Nowadays they have more advantages than humans- they are eternal, they can be in more than one place at a time, dodge taxes, cross borders at will, cannot be charged with murder, etc.
