Apparently the pirates are pleading "root causes".

"Lots of poor people the world over are poor not because they don't have any money, but because they spend the money they do have on crap."
Oh, good grief... are we allowed to say that?

Neo, if you want to check the root causes, it's because they are gawd-dammed criminals.
