Turn it Off

By Andy Bachman

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, March 2012

Recent news of serious labor abuses and alarming suicide rates at a Chinese factory manufacturing Apple products ought to disturb us greatly, particularly if the news of this tragedy is conveyed -- read or viewed -- by that very same device. Imagine, if you will, individuals enraptured by the magnetism of their iPhone screens -- screens that also reflect the suffering and death of the workers who made them, sacrifices on the altar of these coveted electronic devices. It's a tragedy of biblical proportions.
