    The current situation is simply "socialism for the wealthy." This is not new, by the way. The Ownership class,[1] for thousands of years, has always tried to progressively arrange societies so that the "system" grants them advantages and transfers disadvantages (including damage and death) to the disposable slave/serf/landed peasant/indentured servant/paid worker.

    It happened in Russia under the Czars, and it happened in the SU under the Communists. The economic system does not really matter; the Ownership still exerts it's influence.

    [1] Ownership class: by this I mean the constantly changing groups of new and old money, influence $#@!s, power brokers, tyrants, extremely wealthy "campaign contributors"... generally those types of people archtyped[2] by Ayn Rand, in Atlas Shrugged, as "The Aristocracy of Pull."


    [2] or, if you prefer, "woodenly stereotyped one dimensional characters".

    If it wasn't for government regulations, business and industry would kill eveveryone. That's their goal.

    no, their goal is to maximize their profits and if flushing chemical waste into a stream or allowing particulates and other toxics to escape from their stacks will save a few bucks and there's no penalty for it, that's what they'll do.

    try not to be stupid.

    Some of these left wing loons actually believe that the people who run these large corporations think that they are somehow immune to the effects of breathing dirty air and drinking Poisionous water.

    They really believe that their goal is to destroy life as we know it.

    The true cost of industry is not born by the company or the shareholders, it's born by common people.

    You can keep repeating that mantra to yourself, that's your choice. There is a price paid to emissions and pollution and it's not born by industry.

    This is one of the biggest fallacies of capitalism.
