There is something else which I was thinking about as I thought about the Microsoft Chinese worker abuse... The fact that nobody seems to give a crap one way or another. A hundred years ago, the world was on fire with these ideas - human rights, exploitation of the working class.. Countries toppled, millions died. The Cold War, which shaped all of our lives was the result of these monumental world view disagreements. Now it's purely a consumer world - everyone is buying iPads, drinking Starbucks and tweeting.
