In a long winded but well written way by Michael Tobis.
I was pretty much ousted from the progressive community in Madison, WI, some years back when I defended the locally based Kipp Corporation against accusations of the most wanton emission of pollutants into a residential neighborhood. The fact that the neighborhood had grown up around the factory and largely because of the factory was a matter of indifference to its contemporary left wing citizens. Their attitude was that the company “hadn’t successfully proven that it wasn’t emitting dioxins”. My BS detector was good and thoroughly pinned.
This is ugly. People striving for the truth always seem to be in the minority.
