Children’s rights, corporate rights

Joel Bakan writes an interesting op-ed in the Sunday Times comparing the rise of children’s rights and the rise of corporate rights and how we balance out those things.

Children’s rights in the United States are really frozen in the 1930s. While corporations have been steadily gaining the rights of a constitutional person, children have not made the same progress. In fact, it could be argued that corporations in America possess constitutional rights in some aspects of American society (specifically the First Amendment) that children in America are not even close to entitled to.
