Better than thou
This picture solicits both a subtle nod in agreement and after a couple of minutes thinking about it, the half grimace of some sort of divergence in my initial reaction.
In terms of those puzzle activity pictures, the only one I don’t really understand or appreciate is the ‘prawn harvester’… it’s an industry that I am completely unfamiliar with to be honest. I presume it must be quite exploitive to make it into the list though. Cobalt mining for your cellphone is likely the worst of them… if I had to rank them (off the top my head)
I pretty much use all these products (and services) with nary a second thought. I rarely consider the supply chain for a finished product. Out of sight, out of mind. Although I wouldn’t be caught dead in Che Guevara T-shirt. He was not a nice person.
Jesus, or maybe it was John using creative license (since it hard to find actual attributable quotes to JC), had a good one. ‘He that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone’.
*Joey puts down his half-brick*
Damn. He has a point.
Its always difficult to criticize something when you yourself are so utterly and completely enmeshed into that system. I mean I try (vaguely) to make good choices. Or maybe less evil choices about the products I buy. Sometimes. When its convenient.
Like… *thinks* when I buy free range eggs. And then judge those fuckers who buy cartons of battery chicken eggs. For the briefest moment… I’m better than those people.
Ha ha. Yeah…
