On bad Supreme Court rulings

So, everybody's commenting on the latest bit of Supreme Court idiocy—namely, the ruling that the government can take private property for private purposes. This is an awful ruling, and one I find appalling, but I want to be clear on something.

Don't blame the companies.

It is the responsibility of companies to try to make money while complying with the laws. It is not their responibility—though some may choose to do so—to be nice, moral, generous, good role models, or anything else. The government is responsible for succumbing to the temptation to get extra money by ignoring the spirit of the law.

This is a failure of people at all levels of government, not of corporations trying to compete.
