The tone of the public discussion as to whether “we” should “let” News Corporation buy more shares in a company it founded is disgusting. Why do “we” (who never put a penny into either company) have the right to decide? Why do “we” have the right to wipe millions off the value two great companies to gratify “our” lust for vengeance on an old man?
