And we have the right to not buy their oil. Unfortunately, that decision is in the hands of oil company executives who have the "right to do as they wish," and we can bet that their decision will not be influenced by human rights issues.

It has always amused/bemused me, how governments and religious bodies have sought over the ages to legislate against personal and private behaviours of individuals to somehow protect those individuals from themselves and of course maintain/raise the moral tone of their societies.

Now... if only there was some form of legislation available to protect us all from the, regressive, backward looking cruel and inhumane medievalists that still walk amongst us in the 21st century. Time may move inextricably forward, but it is a march that has left the narrow minded and foolish behind.
