Yes, absolutely they are guilty and so are you if you are invested in their industry, but I don't believe that you really comprehend my point.
When does a resource become a national asset and removed from private ownership?
Why should those creatures profiteer? This is the same with cellular phones, internet service and medical care. Privatized it's a monetization scheme, profiteering at the expense of everyone, and in the case of hydrocarbon extraction it decimates the planet in several ways. We don't even have the recipe for fracking fluid, it's kept entirely secret even as people, animals and lands are poisoned by it's commonplace use. Even as earthquakes increase and the water we all rely on is made unusable.
What was the issue with commercial aircraft recently? Oh, yes, "safety" features were optional at cost.
But stick it to me, if you must.
