  •  Well, except that it's Apple that's promoting (0+ / 0-)

    human rights abuses in the piece. They aren't just part of it; they are actively campaigning on its behalf by saying there's no way around it, which is an abject lie. When Walmart promotes human rights abuses in the NYT, we should single them out, too.

    Apple put themselves out there as advocates for the system, and we should feel no compunctions about saying they're bumping the evil up another notch by doing so. They are asserting that the uniqueness of their product trumps all moral concerns. That's grotesque.

     None of that means that everyone else isn't also complicit in evil. But only Apple is telling us they're so fucking special that they're just too good for humane labor.
