Oh, like that great capitalistic environmental hell hole called
Eastern Europe?  Now I'm trying to think, what was the name of that
capitalistic nation that polluted the Earth with radioactivity when a
reactor it managed in Chernobyl malfunctioned?  Which capitalistic
nation was that, now?

I do care about environmental degradation, which is why I oppose
socialist/communist forms of government which encourage it.
