Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm Handy Haversack:

Unfortunately, these *are* American success stories. Growth no matter what the cost has been the foundational ethos of settler-colonist capitalism since Europe first got here. These companies used the system as they found it. So ... well, hard to have hope that the political enablers of this exact system are going to come down *too* hard on them ...

But I like your hope, Mark! And even incremental change is still change.
