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.

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
