Should we buy Apple Products?

Posted on: August 3, 2011


The earlier post http://chintanaigal.blogspot.com/2011/08/icon-steve-jobs-greatest-second-act-in.html indicated how nasty Steve Jobs had been to his coworkers.
If one were humane then one would shun one’s profit or trim one’s profit and carry out manufacturing elsewhere and not in China. China is a country that is known for is Human Rights violation. Apple not only carries out its manufacturing in China but according to reports it is one of the companies that is least responsive to the problems faced by the workers in the factories that supply it with itis components.
Given this one should boycott Apple products and ensure that it is forced to shift its manufacturing units elsewhere. I guess no many shareholders are complaining as most of them do not have anything to do with the plight of the workers in the plants building components for the successful Apple products. But unless we act humanely today and take note of what is happening elsewhere and limit our luxury items, somebody would do the same to us tomorrow. As Christ said “Do unto others as you wish others to do unto you”.
Yes I own an iPod, but I have no plans to buy any further.
