Subject: RE: Morris: A life with bells on - Amazon
Yeah, superior principles and selective boycotts are definitely a costly luxury few ordinary folks can well afford... - It is cheaper refraining from consuming, if it is about money. And sometimes it is about the planet.
& it ain't all about money. Have you tried cancelling Prime? Have you tried buying on Amazon and have to search for a small moveable clickie to avoid Prime every time? A small inconvenience that looms large in people who want to deal with integrity. I want "opt-in" not "gotcha". And when I search for a product I don't want Amazon to ignore half of my search terms and still be the top of the list. Monopolies come with caveats. So do Oligopolies.
And while I am on a rant - I would recommend "The Way of the Morris" a more rewarding film IMNSHO.
