Idiotic idea that.

Making people today pay for something that their ancestors did (and probably had no actual choice in on top of that) is beyond ridiculous. Today's railroad company has absolutely nothing to do with that at all. And if it's a national railroad too then I expect it's taxpayer money they'll be paying out which is utterly disgusting. Why should today's taxpayers, who weren't even born at the time and had no say whatsoever in anything that went on, pay for that?

- so why can't the national railroad decide for themselves what to do?

- the company is state owned but it still makes money.  

- a company paying out to people who lost their parents, because they were involved in their deaths, is hardly disgusting.  Regardless of how long ago it was.  

If they're state owned then they should be doing what's based for the people of the country and instead use that money to provide better services, decrease fares or even just reduce the overall tax burden of the country. Although even if they were entirely private and had every right to decide what to do themselves it wouldn't protect them from criticism.

If it's state owned then any money it makes is effectively owned by the state, and therefore by the people, so they're still giving away taxpayer money.

And yes, it absolutely is disgusting to pay taxpayer money out to people. The taxpayers had nothing at all to do with those deaths and shouldn't have to pay for them.

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702
