[El Reg] 40,000 Apple fanbois demand ethical iPhone 5 - Page 14

post #131 of 141
Guys, it is very easy to have politics slipped into this debate. Please be advised that politics is banned on overclock.net. Keep it out of this discussion please. Also, please watch the personal insults. There is no need to get angry at one another.

And how they're treated like rock stars and worshipped like gods. CEOs are basically deities in the pantheon of the capitalist religion.

So true, what is fascinating though is that they seem to think they can keep pushing buttons. Europe is a fascinating situation, and will have serious consequences in China, whose economy is already slowing down as their massive Keynesian intervention(which incidentally is driving a massive real estate bubble in the larger cities) are losing steam as world demand shrinks. Which is not good for China, those workers making those crappy wages are doing it on the promise that this is the road to them having a standard of living like us. If that illusion crumbles in a Chinese recession uh oh..

But as austerity hits Europe you are seeing the utter stupidity of Capitalists, and this system where they are literally setting the seeds for some massive social revolt. Greece is being forced to pay loans that are impossible to pay as government spending drops, wages are cut(up to 50%!) which slows the economy down even more, which means the loans being taken on impossible to pay back... It's a funny situation, one that is a direct result of this irrational system we call Capitalism. I have a funny feeling when people talk about Capitalism, they don't really understand what it actually means, they ave some warped "it's a free market" durr.. When in reality it is much more.

The Cult of the CEO really does feed into all that, because think with me, who gives all these loans to these countries? It's the 1% if you will, and other countries. How silly that this whole situation can lead to such strange outcomes. Surely the irrationality of it all will become more and more apparent to us all in the coming decades.

while we are at it, we should also push for the ethical treatment of robots. They have feelings too.... Sorry, I don't see any of this changing as it has been going on way before apple came along. If there is something someone can abuse, it will happen.

Humans are not robots. Let me ask you this, can a robot create value? I think not. As an industry becomes MORE mechanized it actually loses value as competition catches up. So the thing produced is worth what it costs to make material wise, nothing more.

Whatever though, I wont bore you all with Economic theory. smile.gif

This is factual wrong, and an theory spread by fools. All that would happen if workers were paid more is PROFITS would be LESS. Keep believing that baloney though.

Maybe people are finally starting to wake up and hold Apple and every other unscrupulous CEO accountable for their actions??? We'll see if this blows over or if people start using their heads and listening to their conscience. Stock holders should also be holding CEOs accountable for their compensation. Voting with your wallet can be a very effective means to hold a company accountable.

Last I read their was over 165,000 names on the iPhone petition. With a few Million more Apple will start to feel the heat.
