I do. All too well.You don't understand addiction at all. Until you demonstrate that you do, there is no further need to argue with you.
Why should a corporation be held accountable for someone elses choices? Jesus christ, where the **** has personal responsibility gone in this country.And no one forced the companies to sell a product that was refined to be toxic and addictive. I already agree with you that the buyer is responsible, but so is the company. What kind of corporate socialist are you? Corporations should be held accountable for their actions.
Yes yes...and if gun manufacturers didn't make guns, no one would die from gunshots. And if car manufacturers didn't make cars, no one would die from car accidents. So and so forth into illogical oblivion.And people wouldn't be dying if they didn't sell them. So there you go. Two sides of the same coin. Why are you so reluctant to come to this conclusion?
Why not? Supply and demand. If the demand wasn't there, the supply would be irrelevant.Individual responsibility and corporate responsibility are two things I am in favour of. Corporations are also comprised of human beings that can make choices. Just because the market provides them with the opportunity to sell a deadly product, doesn't mean they should.
"Helplessly addicted"?In order to cut down on smoking in America, more smokers who are helplessly addicted should sue even more to put a dent in these companies. The government won't shut them down because the government is making profit off of addiction as well; the tobacco companies won't slow down, they will only expand and try to get more people hooked; and the people who are hooked might be hooked for the long term.
Gimme a break.
Yes yes.. sue the person who gave you what you personally sought out, willfully bought, and willfully ingested, all along knowing full well how unhealthy it was. Yes, it's all THEIR fault you kill yourself.I think lawsuits are perfectly acceptable.
I'd laugh if it weren't so pathetic.
