Black Gold...

Does knowing that a coffee worker in Ethiopia makes less than fifty cents a day stop us from buying a 3 dollar cup of joe? Does living in a world of activism and consumer enlightenment inspire change or guilt? I guess it's up to us... voting with one's wallet is an easy way to be a buyer of conscience. Of course you've got to do the research, but what else are you doing with your computer that's so important? If being a concerned citizen doesn't come naturally, then you may have to force yourself. Otherwise, you are in no position to complain about the state of the world.
