The article on the left illustrates “liberalism” – it is showing concern for an issue (racism) in a way that will effect little actual change to racist systems. It argues that somehow if we correct our language (thought police) we will eliminate racism and racist systems. This is absurd, better (read: equal) distribution of resources will 100% address racism and racists systems. Better distribution of resources is a left-wing idea (NOT A LIBERAL ONE), and as you will see, Apple is not left-wing. This liberalism also serves to rile up both “sides” of the culture wars which operate very well as a distraction from the real issues (mainly income inequality and rising fascism) that are negatively impacting the VAST MAJORITY of people’s lives.
The article on the right illustrates “right-wing” economic policies. Apple relies heavily on forced (nearly slave) labor and thus lobbies against laws that prohibit it. Such “free, unregulated market” capitalism is a right-wing belief.
Apple is absolutely a liberal AND right-wing company. Most corporations are. This is neoliberalism and it controls both the Democratic and Republican parties. Nothing will change until money is removed from politics and more political parties become viable options in our political system.
No party but the labor party. No war but the class war.
