As most of us know, Steve Jobs is a great man who turned an idea into one of the world’s most profitable companies. He made billions, and many of the people who worked for him made hundreds of millions. His company set sales and income growth records that surpass those of even the largest oil companies.
I find it interesting that when I see images of the “movement” on television everyone seems to be holding a smart phone. (I personally have never owned an Apple product; I find them to be a little too expensive for my purposes). Apple certainly makes great products, does a great job of pretending to be green, and advertises to (hypnotizes) the hipster generation. Making tablets and telephones is a very dirty business- a lot of dangerous chemicals, copper, chromium, gold, nickel, silver, etc. All these minerals come from dirty mines that (according to the “movement”) despoil the environment and exploit workers. How do you justify this seemingly obvious hypocrisy in your movement? And how do you afford those expensive phones and 4G service. I can’t afford it and I work 50 hours a week?
