No I'm not. Neither am I underestimating the power of greed. I think the
applicable word is hypocrisy.
I have a friend who operates a small store in NC. (Tobacco is a MAJOR
economic power here) He is opposed to the use of tobacco, not on moral
grounds but from the physical damage it does. (He's a Hospice volunteer) He
could make a considerable profit on the sale of those products but does not
based on an ethical decision. He does not avoid the issue or the
responsibility by posting a sign 'I do not endorse these products'
