I don’t mean to descend the pyramid, but who’s giving the companies money to continue their practices?

We must hold man accountable for the actions of mankind, otherwise we will be lost.

We are but only because if we do not pay our taxes we will be detained and if we refuse detainment, shot on our own property which is probably owned by a bank.

The question isn't "who is giving them money to do this" because what they are doing is already profitable.

The question is "Who is paid to look the other way when companies break the law in ways the are profitable to them?" and I think the answer is government regulatory agencies, many of which are "bought out" by the companies they're supposedly overseeing, a process called "regulatory capture".
