“A slap on the wrist won't even make them blink, a few million dollars will make them laugh, but a few hundred BILLION will shove that laughter right back down their throats so they choke on it.“

Exactly. Anything else is pointless.

What is appalling to me, is that big companies with enormous resources (i.e. they do know what they are doing) are allowed to break the law time after time and get away with it by ”oops, didn’t mean/know/whatevermuttermutter, let me fix it in six months, or maybe in twelve if we feel like it” (yet never fixing it).

If I, say, accidentally exceed the speed limit because I didn’t spot a sign, no amount of explaining will make any difference if I get caught.
