Today, ABC reports that Whole Foods is now being boycotted by those who disagree. Says one boycottist:
I think a CEO should take care that if he speaks about politics, that his beliefs reflect at least the majority of his clients.
So it's not OK for a CEO to advocate a political position that's simply good for business, unless he does so in conformity with the dogma of the left. I bought your organic oats, now vote my politics! Excellent advice from a faithful advocate of democracy and free thought.
We also are impressed by the mathematical insight of a person who demands conformity to the beliefs of "at least the majority." We suppose there could someday be something greater than the majority, namely unanimity, especially if the political rights of those who disagree are simply denied, as in Cuban presidential elections and such.
We note with sadness that from the left, the debate is ad hominem, about people who simply don't care about those who don't have healthcare and so who lie about obvious truths, while on the right it's a slippery slope, about exaggerated specters of euthanasia. Really, folks, it ought to be about the best way to improve the system, and once again, we say that the answers are utterly obvious.
