Title: Re: (Mostly off-topic) Fallout and PTSD and Contingenc
<<I am sure you can show that
the media was not accurate; however, did they knowingly or intentionally publish
incorrect information about TMI intended to cause fear? Seems like all they
needed to do to accurately publish information they were hearing from the
government and "experts."
A good movie re. this
point was Absence of Malice (Paul Newman and Sally Field).
So did the TMI event cause the PTSD? Probably and reasonably, no. But the
confusion after the event may have. Assuming that the confusion was not
intentional, was it the result of negligence? That would be very hard to
can be excused initially. They can even escape accountability by merely quoting
people who "believe" that what they're saying is true. Until these people are
held accountable and a jury determines which way to roll the dice. Their usual
tactic is to phrase the absurdity as a question, the most famous being "when did
you quit beating your wife?".
Isn't this the purpose of money? Money gives you the ability to live in a
"nice area" - low crime, not near industry or pollution (far away from the pig
farms?), and that the government will work to assure your investment (that is
what zoning is about). I would like to see the law/rule that will force the
equalization of risks. Hum? Who makes those laws/rules? Who influences them the
most? I am sure that it is not the poor.>>
when the pig farm is there first they get shut down by people moving in and then
complaining about the smell. Or building next to the airport and complaining
about the noise. The only way to "balance" the risk is by showing that
minorities are being indirectly more burdened by the policy.
