"if they show zero concern for holding private sector criminals accountable now..."

And we're the liars?

I have brought up the example of Haliburton destroying the lives of people by pumping dangerous chemicals under pressure into the ground until it destroys the wells---and thereby the lives of those who depend on those wells. I have brought up this example several times on this very forum.

Now the details of how dependent these people are on their wells, I do not know, but I know how dependent I am on my well, and I know the response/structure I would like in place if they did that to me. It's simple:

I would like one individual who was responsible, and I would like a responsible community around me that would back me up when I found that individual and killed him, or that would help me in the necessary action.

Put another way, I would not like it if someone took it upon themselves to destroy my well, and thereby agress against my life by pumping dangerous chemicals into the ground under pressure.

But you prefer to have a government created and protected entity: Haliburton. And let's see, what can I do (what can those people do who are affected by this)? They can pay their taxes for the government to hire an army of academics (I know of specific postdocs who are employed for this very purpose) to figure out better ways for Haliburton to carry on their destructive antisocial behavior. And there's no single person responsible. In fact, there's *limited liability.* Do you even know what that means? It means the government is there to provide enforcement to shield these entities in their actions which destroy the lives of others.

I don't know what else to say. If you can't open your eyes on this kind of corporate crime, and you don't care to do anything about it, I don't think you have much ground to stand on and point a finger at me.
