BP oil spill

I've tried to avoid making outright political statements on this blog (you can bet they are subtly implied through most of my artwork) but it's irritating to keep my thoughts on this issue bottled up inside...

When you have the "Cleanest/ most Eco-friendly/ Socially minded" oil corporation of them all create such a environmentally catastrophic event through their complete greedy disregard for any type of life and continue to epically fail in their response....

You get these moments where you tell yourself that your "progressive" views probably don't have a full rooting in reality, that your judgement of these global corporations is a bit biased... I mean look at BP, look how much money the give to land preservation funds and Eco-friendly groups! Now they can't be all that bad?

It's all a lie, they donate massive amounts of money to keep the environmentalists out of their business. They don't give a flying fizgig about you as a human... if a billion people have to die to turn a profit, so be it!

I'd rail out that this is all the fault of capitalism, but let's face it, if Adam Smith were still alive, he would probably be calling for justice to be granted to these corporate criminals.

Humans of the world unite! you have nothing to loose but your chains!
