Re: “Downing

Thank you Magpiept for expressing exactly what I was going to say! IMO Danehy has the right idea, but he doesn't follow his argument to its logical conclusion. Of course, like Danehy says, BP only cares about doing what MOST huge corporations care about doing- making money. And the government has been the enabler for BP, just as it has been for many other business interests (again as Danehy says). Ultimately though, the blame lies with the American people in general because this never would have happened if we hadn't elected to office those who put corporate interests above public interests (and don't tell me we had no idea ahead of time). We have the power to elect representatives who care more about the public interest than corporate interests, but we choose not to. Until we decide we've finally had enough of this type of dynamic, the status quo will remain and the US will remain a "coporatocracy" rather than a representative democracy as was intended.
