: Thats all they would lose? So people would gladly buy products related to them, there wouldnt be a cooperation to boycott them, they wouldnty become 'bad news' to be associated with and go out of business or 'do the right thing' and stand a chance of carrying on?

You're advocating collective action? but union Carbide is a primary producer, it makes chemicals which are used in countless products, most capitalists wouldn't want to interupt their production over the matter, and most of us can't directly boycott UC, because we don't buy from tehm directly- we'd just have to boycott anything that might have their chemicals in.
Besides, such a boycott is hardly Capitalist, is it, and further, it doesn't help the victims non.
