Top 10 Best Moments of Free Enterprise in 2005

on

Grab your sense of humour and run to Steven Milloy’s most recent post on the “national conservative weekly” Human Events.

Touting a list of the “Top 10 Worst Moments for Free Enterprise in 2005,” Milloy opens by saying:

This annual list spotlights companies who have most egregiously abandoned their fiduciary and moral responsibilities to their shareholders and our free enterprise system, respectively, in favor of embracing the false and harmful social activist-promoted notion of “corporate social responsibility.”

“… most egregiously…!” Don’t you love that?

There follows 10 examples of capitalist backsliders like Wal-Mart doing things like spending money on technologies that reduce greenhouse gases.

If Milloy is serious, this sets a new benchmark for anti-environmentalism. If he’s not (and we’re suspicious), he is the cleverest and most devious enviro campaigner in the game today.
