Only someone trained in the law could take a term that was used to compare a sole proprietorship and a corporate structure and imbue it with life.
Can a corporation now register to vote? Can it register for the draft when it reaches 18 years of age? Can a corporation be stillborn?
First, a corporation may, before the bar, be considered as a person, or single entity, but I wont perform any marriage ceremony for two of them to marry, no matter their inclination.
How far removed from reality must we get to consider money as a form of speech and then to take a comparative term, person, and breathe life into it.
