"After a spate of suicides in a Foxconn facility in China making iPads and iPhones, albeit at a lower rate than in China as a whole, workers were forced to sign a legally binding document guaranteeing that they would not kill themselves."

Who says the Chinese have a bad sense of humor? I love dark comedy!

We don't really care about Chinese workers, only that we get our gadgets at a cheap price.

Speak for yourself, I care about human well-being and I don't see humans in categories like collectivists.

In that sense, yeah, it's inescapable. But, when dealing with philosophy, economics, and liberty I see the individual.
