The fact is, that today, dear US reader, the State, County and City in which you reside is a ‘legal’ Corporation. If you don’t believe me, just internet search for “Corporation of _________”, and see for yourself.
There are also “closed” corporations. Closed corporations are those who have all their stock owned by certain (often few) entities. No amount of whining by the plebes make any difference in the way closed corporations are operated. They are operated in the precise way the tenured stockholders approve.
ALL MODERN GOVERNMENTS ON THIS PLANET ARE CLOSED CORPORATIONS OR THEIR EQUIVALENT…ALL…OF…THEM. You cannot buy any stock.. in fact you ARE their stock.
