I guess we all have a different definition of insanity!(!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Corporations have one motive and that is profit. When some entity can save millions of dollars by opening a
runoff valve full of sludge somewhere it would be nice to know that there is an impartial observer who would blow
the whistle.Large multinational corporations wield the power and influence in this free market. Their influence
(corporate) can be seen from the polluted rivers and lakes of Alberta to the corrupt politicians you mentioned.
In fact it's the large free-market entities that have corrupted many of our politicians and public officials. We need
a new regulatory body for politicians and to ensure corporations have no access to policy decision making.
You guys always come back saying the regulators are ineffective-- we need to make them effective.
To reiterate I believe it is insanity for you to think that unregulated corporations wouldn't tear the world apart in
their quest for profits (see South American agriculture and mining practices).
