Don’t ever learn how candy is made. (A comment to Matt Taibbi)

A comment to Matt Taibbi: If we are going to castigate Steve Jobs and every other consumer electronics company for this behavior, then just like drug addicts, we need to blame ourselves as much. We want our toys cheap, and if some brown or yellow kids have to suffer, well, what can you do? For every point you give Steve for Foxconn, we deserve at least a half point, if not more than a point. We, the american consumer demanded this stuff as cheaply as possible, and now that Apple and other companies are delivering, we suddenly get a case of the vapors about the ugly details? Don’t ever learn how candy is made.
