Response to Warren Stupidity (Reply #11)

14. He's making a general point about autonomy and sovereignty.

 

And the point is that we have little recourse when it comes to forcing sovereign entities to follow our wishes. The principle is the same whether they are mountain climbers, people who wish to stay in their homes during a natural disaster, companies that want to produce jobs at the expense of the environment, or countries that want to do stupid things like site the diesel tanks for backup power systems in harm's way. Our ability to intervene is limited in each case by legal notions of sovereignty.
