Earlier this year, the US Supreme Court made the “personhood” of corporations a legal reality.  Reified economic processes have all the rights of flesh-and-blood human beings.  As I write this, an unprecedented oil spill is turning the Gulf of Mexico into a toxic cesspool—an ecological nightmare created by one of these reified persons.

If Mary Shelley were writing today, her monster would be listed on the Fortune 500.
