It never ceases to amaze me that the government was not directly involved with the containment and clean up of Fukushima every step in the way and,
instead, has continued to let TEPCO control the entire operation. Perhaps the Japanese government should have paid attention to BP's activities and
falsehoods after the Macondo Well blew because, as Milton Friedman said, "There is one and only one social responsibility of business...to increase
its profits so long as it stays within the rules of the game, which is to say, engages in open and free competition without deception or fraud”.
Care for the environment, or commons, is not included in this much lauded "ethical" stance of the corporate world. It is truly a broken mentality
that we seem to increasingly pay the price for as in the case of Fukushima.
