In short, what sort of world are we creating by supporting these outfits?
Amazon are apparently setting up to sell food here (Australia) too. I won't be buying from them though. Occasionally my wife will buy some things from Aldi, but at least they're not an online retailer (at this point).
I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
