I am not sure about you, however there is a MORAL value to be had here, the conditions they have these people work under is beyond appauling, I have
seen it with my own two eyes. Here in the USA if you refuse to deal with the corporations you have to go run naked through the woods the rest of yor
life, they own everything one way or another. Their tenticles are so deep that even when you think you are buying a family run business, as way the
case of me buying a bag of frozen vegetables once, turns out general mills owns them too, sold out in 1998. They have a million brand names out there,
take your pick, you will probably wind up dealing with them at some point.
When you have to deal with them most people do not know how the "goods" got to that point, let alone who is responsible for the goods being
there. From what I have seen of where the goods come from, and then watching documentaries on the other goods made, there is a complete vaccume of
moral from how things opperate. They use slaves, indentured slaves, child labor, and forced labor in some Asian countries and some South American ones
like Chile before the revolution to oust the dictators who supported Coca-Cola.
The USA is supposed to have a moral value, and that has been thrown away, people are still viewed as property, however the new name for it is
"company asset's" which is a more "polite" name for slaves. This needs to be stopped, economics based on slavery, indentured workers, and child
labor, and forced labor is the quickest way to get the world to hate you, and most of the world is poor so you are outnumbered rather quickly since
the poor class bears the burden in this case.
They shuffle factories from place to place in accordance to who has no laws vs. those who have laws. In a no law area they can hire mercenaries
to protect their factory and force people to work, in some areas where there is SOME law but not enough, like India, they can get away with ANYTHING
they want because there is no law against it. Thus Coca-Cola LOVES India, no laws to prevent them from polluting, or stealing land from people, also
the government is corrupt so they can get away with it should anyone squak.
The corporations need brought down, they are growing fat off the blood and lives of others, not just adults but even children and society on the
whole. That is moraly and ethicaly wrong.
