36. Conspiracy paranoia? I would say you are ignoring the way this industry
has done business, even though you profess concern.
Not so long ago, people pointing out the apparent abuses of the finanical industry were poo-pooed too, with conspiracy paranoia and other such derogatory terms. Unfortunately, they turned out to be right.
It's the culture and climate of trying to get away with anything to make a buck that bothers me.
If you deny that this culture and climate exist, that they imperil public health and well being, then you're right, the conversation is over.
