They (the upper 1%) don’t care that you (the lower 99%) care. They seriously don’t think about you, or what you think about, unless you get in the way of the profits to their very-very few, then they will use the full power of their wealth to ‘clean it up’. If that causes damage to the environment, they don’t care, if it causes illness in you, they don’t care, if it causes deaths, they don’t care.
They seriously don’t care that you care. They really don’t care that their not caring bothers you. They don’t think about it, or you, at all.
