Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I could justify the turntable if need be. I could justify Larry Ellison's incredible yachts and the employment that they bring, the lifting of quality standards world-wide and interesting spin offs from the developments. I could also smear them (as well as my time as a keyboard junkie) for egregious greed in a world that has more people suffering than surviving well, more people merely surviving than creating well.

This boils down to three things.

  1. population control
  2. resource allocation
  3. sustainability

And really item one and two are subsets of item three. Sustainability is still ill-defined, even by people on this website. That's certainly part of the problem. Leftists defending apple also demonstrates an emotional and intellectual gulf that will not be easy to bridge.

you are the media you consume.
