Let me get this straight. A company arranges to create a chemical factory in India. Disgruntled workers, desiring to vent their frustrations, decide to sabotage the plant. Many die.

So this is the fault of - Union Carbide? This proves that capitalist corporate enterprises are corrupt? Needless to say, I am somewhat curious as to the reasoning here.

If student kill their classmates, it's the fault of - gun manufacturers? If smokers get cancer, it's the fault of - tobacco companies? If a hammer is used in a murder, is Black&Decker at fault?

Whereas, of course, all the profitable outputs of a corporate enterprise are communal property. Naturally.

Hmm. I think I'm beginning to get the grip on this 'left-wing' thing, Gee. I feel more holy already.
