Use more oil = spill more oil: we buy oil thus BP exists!

Nate Hagens writes a somewhat obvious opinion, but very important point about the oil spill and our responsibility as oil consumers:

If you are a vegetarian, off the gridder who walks everywhere and doesn’t buy anything via corporations, then YOU have the ability/right to complain about your share of the commons that is being impacted by this tragedy. Everyone else, and some more than others, bears responsiblity for this situation and as such shouldn’t only be casting stones at BP.

We must live the change we want to see in the world.
