Quoted for truth. Anyone who doubts it should see the documentary The Corporation.
I think one of the funniest and most ironic examples of that is Apple. Tree hugging, "lilly livered liberals," happily tote around their iphones and ipads like they are some great example of aultruism and coprorate responsibility but when you dig deeper they dodge taxes and exploit Chinese workers with the best of them - if not more so.
I completely agree. I love Apple's products, but its corporate culture is just as awful as anyone else's. Corporations cannot help but be morally corrupt.

I had to laugh during the, occupy Wall Street program - many people were carrying their ipads seemingly not even realizing that Apple is right up therre with the rest of the worst.
I am at an absolute loss to imagine how anyone can be effective in pushing for corporate change without using a computer. Are you honestly saying that a customer doesn't have a right to demand change from a corporation?
