Should Legislators be prohibited from distinguishing between natural persons and corporations or other artificial entities created by law?

If so, how has this group suffered from past exploitation, and how has this exploitation been sanctioned by legislation?
Would they then require affirmative action legislation in order to compensate for established structural inequality?
