The sad truth is that this disaster in the Gulf of Mexico isn’t an aberration. It’s just business as usual in the corporatocracy known as the United States of America, Inc. The corporations run this country, and they do whatever they want, regardless of how many people are killed, how many laws are broken or how many miles of coastline are utterly destroyed by chemical contamination. They operate with utter disregard for anything resembling ethics or honesty.
Corporate greed knows no limits. If corporate executives could profit another billion dollars by destroying the entire Gulf of Mexico, do you have any doubt they would pursue that course of action? Your life has no value to them. Marine life has no value to them. The health of the world’s oceans have no value to them. They only value one thing: The bottom line profit they can produce at any cost.
British Petroleum = Big Pharma = Big Food = Big Agriculture = the Military Industrial Complex.
It’s all the same, folks. Do not be surprised that these criminal corporate operators are destroying our planet. They’ve been doing it for generations, and they absolutely will not stop unless We the People make them stop through force (by having these people arrested and imprisoned, for example).
If you really want to clean up the planet, we should stop tossing chemical dispersants into the Gulf and just start tossing greed-minded corporate executives into the ocean and see how far they can swim when they’re coated with oil.
That would be planetary justice, my friends, and it would send a powerful message that corporate executives who cause harm to the world around them may end up swimming in the very same cesspools of greed they themselves created.
