Maybe I should have just said "There is no such thing as a responsible consumer" But that'd have been off-topic in a sense My point was you either suck it up and are a consumer, which makes you automatically support slave labor in 3rd world country X and at least have the decency to admit to that fact.

Or don't admit to that, but then don't protest a companies business practice after having bought their product. Thats retarded, and makes you automatically a hypocrite ^^

I just said i don't support Apple, for reasons beyond this topic, but i also have no doubt that i supported torturous work conditions thousands of times already, my point was, complain about it but if you do, don't single out Apple or call yourself "responsible consumer" that alone in this day and age is a misnomer, there can't be responsible consumption in capitalism and perpetual growth economics

And now you know why I mentioned that it might have been off topic
