Not to mention, blaming consumers who for the most part don't know the truth because it's being hidden and
manipulated by corporations who "do know" better. But they seek out the poorest countries, bribe officials to make pro corpo
exploitation laws which they could never get away with in the US because of Labor Laws. Well except for several gop run states,
who are trying to dismantle Child Labor Laws so their sponsor corporations can get cheap labor here in the US.

Consumers only get the choices corporations want us to have, until we consumers find out and fight for better choices.

Then he takes of to self justify is pro corporate beliefs, unless I missed something?

Missing the point. Fair Trade isn't about helping the poorest workers in the world. It's about not supporting abusive systems. This isn't a zero sum game.

Fairtrade Certified Chocolate
As consumers we can only do so much, just look for the Fair Trade logo on Chocolate bars and such.
It's one of, if not the best organization available.

Meh. Everything that you do not grow, raise, or make yourself is in some way ethically tainted. But, as a species, we don't care. We value variety and convenience above all else, ethics included.
