Which is why this isn't about the market. It's about what people are willing to submit to in order to work for a particular company. this isn't a case of peopel ignoring the bad **** a company does simply because they want cheap crap made in china.
This is about what a company does to those people. If society as a whole submits to these things, then society as a whole is saying that this is socially optimal.
If the people are willing to submit to averse conditions in order to attain employment, that is their prerogative. I wouldn't do something I had a fundamental disagreement with simply to get a job, regardless of it's payscale. That's why I don't think the slippery slope fallacy you presented before has any merit (aside form teh fact that it was fallacious reasoning, of course).
I beleive that people won't sbject themselves to something that they are fundamentally opposed to. I believe enough small businesses would exist which are owned by people who have a fuindamental disagreement with these policies that they would not become universal and that options will always exist for those who have that fundamental disagreement.
Will those people who have that fundamental disagreement be SOOL when it comes to getting the jobs where these are requirements? Absolutely. And that sucks for them. But at the end of the day, if they aren't willing to deal with some discomfort in order to live by their principles, they don't really have any principles.
So far everything you have written hass indicated you aren't interested in discussing my actual views, but instead would rather do battle with an imaginary libertarian.So far, everything you have written has indicated that you have a Panglossian view that whatever outcome occurs is the socially optimal outcome, as long as it was decided by the free market (or "society" if that is your preferred euphemism).
If that's what you want to do, go right ahead, but please don't pretend that it is me that you are discussin gthis with. Admit that you are doing battle with an invisible libertarian.
There's nothing to make my mind up about. The two statements I made are not contradictory in any way.You just stated that if they don't submit and everyone else does, then they're SOOL (and that that's OK with you). Make up your mind.
In the second statement, I was talking about the people who were willing to submit.
In the previous statement, the people who were SOOL were those who were unwilling to submit.
As we all know, someone cannot be willing to submit and unwilling to submit at the same time. They are mutually exclusive situations.
While they are unwilling to submit, their unhappiness is not "their own fault". In that case, they are SOOL. For them, I do have sympathy, and I respect them for taking a stand on principle.
But the moment they become willing to submit, however, their unhappiness is entirely their own fault and no one elses.
By becoming willing to submit, they made the choice to be party to their own unhappiness AND to **** on their own principles. They not only are at fault for their own unhappiness, they deserve to be unhappy because they didn't have the balls to take a stand on principle.
I believe that peopel should approach life like this more often. The fact of the matter is that most people in our society are the cause of their own unhappiness. Nowadays most people seem to have a victim mentality hwere they prefer to muddle along impotently bitching about how "unfair" everything is without ever actually doing anything to take control of their own destiny.
Ironically, their in action is an action of it's own. Their inaction is a choice to be unhappy.
Hopefully they some day realize that they are the primary cause of their own unhappiness.
This issue is a primary example. Instead of doing things for themselves, peopel are complacent to allow otehrs to do it for them by having the government step in and save them from themselves.
Que sera sera. Personally, I'd rather be in charge of my own destiny.
