Re: If you own an Apple product, then you are the problem.
you are partly right but the trick always was to remove from "our/your" eyes the consequences of your behavior.
You see the shinny product, you don't see the suffering, it is so far anyway, and one can rationalize "it was like this here before" (that's a lie but whatever).
But how can we think that the same way earth resources are infinite, cost can go infinitely down and so on and so on.
And it is not like just giving 10% more to suppliers would destroy Apple profits but it would make a world of difference to the workers (supposing some would be passed to them but lol)
And the last fallacy about "customer demands" is that we would have a choice :
Can you buy a smartphone not made in china ?
Is google better than apple ?
Sony than Microsoft ?
Competition is a fallacy in the modern "capitalist" economy. There is no diversity of practices, sames rules leads to the same consequences, the destruction of rules lead to the same jungle everywhere.
Civilization IS rules.
