206. Need more straw for your many strawmen?
The way it is now we have cozy regulators and a government who protects these companies. You wouldn't need much regulation if companies and the people who run them were actually held accountable. This was never allowed to become the way things work because the government stopped the process from the start. Then they step in and allow limited liability and once something does happen they put caps on what these companies are responsible for.

I don't know where you're getting the idea I'm defending these companies. I actually want them held accountable where you simply want more feel good legislation and wasted resources on more regulatory position.

Since when have they "regulated" themselves? The oil industry is probably the most heavily regulated industry on the Earth. As I said though, the inherent problems with "regulation" in a fascist state don't allow them to be effective.
