Apple reminds us that Capitalism without Christ is no better than Communism
Apple, like most corporations, comes off as pretty much amoral where values are concerned. After all, the main purpose, in fact the only purpose, for a corporation is to make money. Tons of money. Gobs of money. Never ending streams of money. Little things like morals, values, and ethics are usually a concern only where increasing the bottom line is at stake. Most corporations and many big money makers in our country are, shockingly, to the left. The reason? What better field for financial harvest than a society whose main values manifest themselves in hedonism and narcissism, revelry and selfish obsession with material possessions? And like the emergent post modern Left to which it caters, Apple thinks nothing of using some good old censorship to keep out those who fail to conform to the Left's dogmatic definitions of diversity.
