Alt-text from XKCD: “I can’t remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you’re saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it’s not literally illegal to express.”

cestblitz asked: Why don't you agree with ethical consumerism. I have mixed feelings about it and I'd love some other view points.

neoliberalismkills:

I’ve made a post about this before, I believe. (I think I need to add a page that outlines my beliefs on my faq, thanks)

Basically ethical consumerism is literally just a pat on the back for privileged people who have the ability to pick and choose who they get to buy from and feel self-righteous about what they’re doing. Sure, do it if you want to, but don’t ever tell anyone else to do it, and don’t feel like you’re suddenly a good person because you aren’t purchasing from one company or another.

Plus, every company is complicit in capitalism, so there is literally no way to actually ethically consume. 

When people were boycotting Wal-Mart, there were all these posts about “if you still buy your groceries from there, you don’t really care about those factory workers in Bangladesh!!” while completely fucking failing to recognize that a lot of us, me as well, can’t afford to fucking shop for our groceries anywhere else. 

Sure, “ethically” consume if you want. I personally don’t buy Chik-fil-a because they’re homophobic, but I’d never tell someone else not to buy their food (because goddamn, even as a vegetarian, I remember how fucking delicious their chicken is). 

And I’d like to reiterate, there is no real way to ethically consume. Buying from companies implicit in capitalism, benefiting off of the labor of the working class while amassing huge profits and always ALWAYS using unethical ways of getting around costs, you’re not going to be able to find a capitalist company that is ethical because that is, in itself, a paradox. There’s no such thing.

obfuscatingdeity:

the thing to realize here is that conservatives find the idea of paying workers a livable wage so absurd that they make hyperbolic comparisons like this

because fifteen dollars and hour and a hundred thousand dollars an hour both mean the same thing to them; more than you deserve

^That commentary is very important.

"When wealth is passed off as merit, bad luck is seen as bad character. This is how ideologues justify punishing the sick and the poor. But poverty is neither a crime nor a character flaw. Stigmatise those who let people die, not those who struggle to live."
