However, the government 'cronyism' is the problem; The government 'allowed' the corporations to get rid of chemicals in that manner. If Mr. Bliss chose to be service'to'others ; The government would have encourage Monsanto  and NEPACCO to just find someone else. He very much was used an skape'goat.
The government 'knows' it is at fault for endangering Times Beach. That is why it tries, but unsuccessfully by evidence of this video alone, to gloss over and hide the entire embarrassment in plane sight.
People refusing to hold Bliss accountable 'before the shit hit the fan', and running him out of town is what would have saved the town. Instead, they simply waited until the situation grew to the point where it was beyond recoverable 'for the town'.
The factions in the government that are actively 'hiding' the true story behind Times Beach are also probably responsible for at least 'letting' 9/11 happen, if not being guilty of much worse choices. They like coincidences to hide things in plain sight, and that is probably why they had the "ribbon cutting" ceremony on September 11th in 1999.
bLame Stream Media likes to say "the government fails at hiding anything"; And yet that is only true when people actually know history. With the war by the unions of teachers , , , &  against America, and their revisionist writing of history, it has been very easy for them to keep the secret, until the advent of the internet in the Information Age.
Furthermore, 'health insurance' is a privilege instead of a right. The want for the state to take care of plebeians is only generated by the destruction of charity from income tax and families by any number of government policies.
