"In fact, this is part of the ecosystem, especially in the hip hop world. It's why the artists also support those hip hop blogs that the RIAA insists are dens of pure thievery. The artists release their tracks to those blogs, knowing they'll get tons of downloads — and actually get money. If they do deals with labels, they know they'll never see a dime. Putting music on Megaupload is a way to get paid. Working with a gatekeeper is not."
Do you think that the US DOJ is being used to crush competition for incumbent "gatekeeper" industries, who have a history of taking maximum profits, without adding tangible value?

They still drill in The Geysers because the resulting quakes are predictably minor and the geothermal energy harvested is much more economically important than cracked foundations, paying millions in claims or not.
Actually, it isn't. The generation facility at The Geysers has never been profitable. It has always been under production and over budget. It must be seen as a failure on all levels. We don't even have reliable power in Middletown, for fuck's sake, let alone the rest of the county.

"They still drill in The Geysers because the resulting quakes are predictably minor and cracked foundations, paying millions in claims, is much more economically important than the geothermal energy harvested or not."
See they are add millions to the economy, that a geologically stable method wouldn't.

In a self proclaimed republic, or Nation-state as they like to be called these days, citizens are responsible for the actions of the state. The whole principle of Nation-State is that they get their power by it being delegated to the state by it's citizens.
The "I can't be held liable for the car crash because I had set the curse-control and was in the back of the RV making a sandwich at the time of the accident." defense doesn't work.
Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. (The Rome Statute was agreed upon in 1998 as the foundational document of the International Criminal Court, established to try those individuals accused of serious international crimes.) Article 33, titled "Superior Orders and prescription of law," states:
1. The fact that a crime within the jurisdiction of the Court has been committed by a person pursuant to an order of a Government or of a superior, whether military or civilian, shall not relieve that person of criminal responsibility unless:
(a) The person was under a legal obligation to obey orders of the Government or the superior in question;
(b) The person did not know that the order was unlawful; and
(c) The order was not manifestly unlawful.
2. For the purposes of this article, orders to commit genocide or crimes against humanity are manifestly unlawful.
