Ronald Dworkin weighs in on Citizens United v. FEC

Short version: I think he might be even less favorable toward the opinion than I am.  A taste:

“The opinion announces and perpetuates a shallow, simplistic understanding of the First Amendment, one that actually undermines one of the most basic purposes of free speech, which is to protect democracy. The nerve of his argument—that corporations must be treated like real people under the First Amendment—is in my view preposterous.”
