    The individual owner, apparently, was admirably gaming the system to maintain his individual rights - - except that this was in a social context, in the context of livelihoods and lives of others.

    Just like the owner of Massey Energy, the guy was thinking of his duty and himself as a "business owner." The problem is that he is not a solitary individual. The very social imprint that he (or they) want to use to get greater weight in social discourse means that they cannot act by egoism. When they do, other people die.

    Everyone is innocent of some crime.
