mr. scheer follows up with questions and comments that broaden our focus so that we understand the degree to which large international corporations routinely break the law, cauding widespread misery while receiving no more than a slap and often not even that. Because he pursues the darker side of the story, our outrage and disgust are actually validated because the crimes arecalled out for what they are: complete corporate thuggery. Many thanks to the author and Mr Scheer for a fine interview.
