Say It Out Loud

Say it out loud with me: "British Petroleum, a foreign corporation, responsible for a massive disaster, is hiring mercenaries to serve on U.S. soil to prevent exercise of the First Amendment by local news agencies."

Now I think I have a shred of emotional understanding of what helps fuel MEND.

At the risk of repetition, too many British pensioners (not to mention the British Royals) depend on BP for a portion of their income/wealth/etc. to let anyone seriously hinder BP wherever it operates (including America's back yard).

What we're seeing is a hint of what it's always been like in other parts of the world where a major multinational corporation's prerogatives conflict with those of the locals. Look at the bright side: at least BP isn't Union Carbide and we're not Bopal, India this time.

A major social mood decline will, I think, wipe away the willingness to consent to this state of affairs.
