Bush’s (neocon’s) view of the environment
is to permit big business to roll back laws which effect profits.The latest
move comes with the new budget which makes necessary the closing of the EPA libraries.They closing of the data banks in 06 will cripple legal actions against violators.Moreover, their plans include the laying off of staff; their work is to be replaced by contracts given to the very
violators that the EPA investigates.
Skeptics see both sides of issues,

·A much different government, for those who pay the piper call the tunes.The alliance with business has become more blatant as the awareness of the common
people has shifted in their direction.Business is about profits, and the environmental
laws cost money.

Neoliberals have coop democracy, and at the head of this is the financial
community.Don’t be fooled by the rhetoric, the system is about profits.It aint the words or legislation, but actions which reveals the shadow government.As Aristotle observed:“A democracy
exists whenever those who are free and poor are in sovereign control of the government:an oligarchy when the control lies in the hands of the rich and better born.”
