    You have options. No one is forcing anyone (here anyway) to buy anything the object to. That's not "society". If you object to children making Nikes, you don't have to buy Nikes. You can not buy Nikes and still participate in society.

    You should do this for every corporation and you realize there's almost nothing left to buy

    It’s getting easier to do, too, as like 6 corporations actually own everything.

    True. We should try to price smaller ones out of the market and get it down to 3 corporations. When do we raise minimum wage?

    If we didn’t have government, we wouldn’t have corporations, which are purely a creation of the state. So if you think that corporate exploitation of individuals is the problem, then you should agree that the solution is to eliminate the state, or at very minimum, it’s involvement in any aspect of commerce. It’s so obvious.

    (an actual exchange)

    Reporter: Mr. Prez do some members of the dem party want to defund the police?

    Biden: Are there some members of the Republican Party who believe we suck the blood out of children?

    *walks away*

    Yes, thank you. Let’s talk about how fucking absurd the other party is before we even dignify legitimate questions.

    Not to interrupt but is anyone else fascinated by the Florida man who either plotted to or was used as a pawn in the assassination of the Haitian president thinking he would be his replacement?
