The problem is very basic: capitalists do not have to care about social costs within the accumulation of capital. Ergo they are parasites. Any governmental regulation is thereby progressive for mankind.
I'm sure a governement drilling operation would never make such fatal mistakes. Reality check?
At least there is the possibility of a democratic control. Which is not the case with BP. Their motive: profit. Not avoiding social costs. Rand Paul even opposes external control, which is even more perverse.
