A complicated washing machine your mom can't operate that uses hot water on the dark colors and cold on the whites. A TV that won't even let Dad change channels until he connects to a hotspot and logs into his Microsoft account. A complicated computerized refrigerator Grandma and Grandpa can't operate lets their food spoil, and they die of food poisoning. Nobody wants or needs this crap!

They stood by and watched their CEO get ousted because of a donation to a cause that the majority supported.

It is weird how so many anti-freedom people like yourself are so quick to claim majority support for what Eich did. Sure, a slim majority were anti-gay marriage back when he tried to enshrine his religious dogma into law. But the overwhelming majority did not support "the cause" enough to spend money on it. By his own actions he revealed himself to be an extremist.

Furthermore, the whole idea that being part of a majority somehow excuses a person from judgment and consequences of their actions is itself morally bankrupt. The civil rights movement was a struggle against majority opinion too.

BTW, the freedom to restrict another person's freedom is freedom in name alone.

There is no theoretically perfect solution, but there is a practical solution.
