Oh the privations of giving up Coca-Cola!
Convincing people about the logic of boycotting Coca-Cola can be frustrating as the impression many give, as well as ad hominem arguments, is that it is too much of a burden to be bothered with.
This is a quote from Max Keiser of Karmabanque
“We the people have the power to take coke's stock down to zero. And we the people are the shepherd of the global economy, not the corporations. We don't want corporations being our shepherd for obvious reasons; they're not in the humanity business. At the moment; the corporations seem to think that they can do anything they want with impunity this is a very unhealthy situation as I see it because the these corporations are extremely narrow in their focus and tend to destroy things like the environment without thinking twice about it...
Is coke OK, is coke not OK? This is not the question. The question is, are we going to stand and start pushing back and reasserting ourselves as the rightful architects of our destiny in this globalized world are we going to let narrowly focused, non-accountable, dubious product pushing monopolists undermine our freedoms? Coke is vulnerable, let's take it down and reassert our dominion in this world.”
