We don't live in a binary world.
If we did, you would be right though.
But we don't.
They are NOT the same thing.
With do the right thing, you're supposed to seek out 'goodness', but with 'don't be evil' you're supposed to avoid badness.
Although avoiding badness sounds weak, it's more in compatible with western values; western societies have a list of things you're not supposed to do.
To do the 'right' thing, is more of a totalitarian position.
At least morality is in the room though; with 'do the right thing', it might as well just be for the shareholder's wallets; and that's not morality, that's finance.
Fiorina and Jobs were like Bush and Putin. Said Bush of Putin, "I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straightforward and trustworthy."
You're being ridiculous. I am an energy-efficiency wonk. You can build as many nuclear power plants as you want, as long as they can compete with other forms of clean energy on price.
Once we have switched to zero-carbon electricity or at least made polluting forms of energy pay appropriate taxes to offset the damage they do, you can use as much energy as you want. That is between you and your wallet. But until then, your electricity consumption is partially paid for by me. Do not waste MY money.
Just how stupid are British officials that they can't see the obvious route is to sue and fine the company directly for false advertising
Because requiring consumers to sue a company, with all the hassle and legal costs, provides consumers with no effective protection. That is why Britain has consumer protection legislation. It provides an easy route for consumers to get redress.
I am not "Rambo", and real life is NOT a movie.
It could be, though! Think of the possibilities! Give everyone and gun and let the games begin! After all, we must enjoy this sort of thing, or we'd have put a stop to it long before now. All I'm saying is that maybe we should just play the hand we're dealt!
Most likely not "from Russia" or "from Syria", where they're probably killing at least 10 people per hour today.
AFAIK, in the US you can use "the best" but not "better than" unless you have a way to back it up. Thus, "the best beer" is OK, but "better than Bud" is not OK unless you cite some specific like, "beat Bud in a blind taste test".
Having different rules for different countries is probably going to give international ad campaigners some fits. That's the beauty of sovereignty though. Different systems, and we get to see what's workable in practice and what isn't.
If entropy is increasing, where is it coming from?
