well that's what i said the post you were quoting, no?

but the companies do have a moral and a legal responsibility. it is wrong to dump toxic waste on third world nations simply because theres no one around to stop them.

In the perfect world, yes. But throughout history the stronger always exploited the weaker, the only difference is that in 21st century it's done with more subtlety when compared to, say, middle ages where you could simply conquer the weaker country.

i don't disagree with that

but i sense that the difference between me and you is that you you seem to accept injustice as something natural and perhaps with no real desire to stop it
