Should corporations be considered individuals by the law?

There are many reasons I do not think that corporations should have the same rights as individual persons. Corporations are effectively not subject to the effects of aging, they can have virtually unlimited resources, they dodge personal responsibility by selectively using scape-goats/layoffs/contractors, and they can effectively dodge taxation by getting subsidies or tax-breaks that ordinary individuals cannot get.

Bypassing US Taxes is an interesting article about how they are abusing international trade laws to bypass paying taxes. While I may sympathize, I am also angered, as that tax burden is transferred to you and me when it is not paid by large corporations who have all the benefits, but none of the liabilities nor responsibilities of individual people.
