DISMANTLING CORPORATIONS – Richard Grossman

Richard Grossman said: “.. corporations don’t have rights. Rights are for people. Corporations only have privileges, and only those that we the people bestow on them.” In a nutshell that was the essence of his research and teaching for the last 20 years.

Ralph Nader called him the “preeminent historian of corporations” and a new, inspiring reading of history was his special gift. Richard said that the American revolution was fought less against the crown but against the crown corporations. And he believed that it’s time to remember that fight and assert sovereignty of the people over the corporate state and ask: Why should the many be governed by the few?”

Begins with an intriguing archival speech on the history of corporations and ends with two important projects Grossman worked on just before his death, his contribution to the Occupy movement: A law to criminalize hydro-fracking and corporations as a class or group.

In the Preface to his 1993 pamphlet, Taking Care of Business, Richard wrote: “Corporations cause harm every day. Why do their harms go unchecked? How can they dictate what we produce, how we work, what we eat, drink and breathe? How did a self-governing people let this come to pass? – Corporations were not supposed to reign in the United States.”

In the last 15 years he had been an important member of POCLAD, the Project on Corporations, Law and Democracy and CELDF, the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund. His lasting legacy are the Democracy Schools that continue to be taught across the country.

Richard died of melanoma on November 22nd, 2011, at a hospital in New York City, where he was born sixty-eight years earlier. From A TUC Radio Presentation.
