'What is missing is this real belief that business should be more about public good than private greed. Whatever law this country gives or puts in place to protect my health, or the environment, if it gets in the way of trade it is suppressed. And consistent environmental laws are suppressed if it gets in the way of trade. Now, the government is in the bloody pockets of businesses. So who's gonna control this most powerful institution? Business is more powerful than politics, and it's more powerful than religion. So it's not gonna be government. The United Nations hasn't got a prayer in this.
