    Morality has nothing to do with politics, or does it in your case? Only you have brought up politics. Capitalism can be and is a good thing because it allows for other than state run businesses. It just isn't right when a CEO makes a 1000 times more...

    That is not at all what I said. I was just pointing out that we have the same issue with all luxury items AND how different people feel about them. On another site, Vintage Majority usually tells anyone who asks not to buy new because vintage is...

    Yeah now ask what watch everyone is wearing. Same deal, a $25 Timex tells the same time as a $20K Rolex, but some people have the need to say "I have a Rolex" It is no different with every other luxury item out there including audio.

    No. In that case economics, competition, should resolve the issue. Who in their right mind would pay $3k more for something than they had to? In Magico's case it wouldn't be apples to apples, you'd have to decide if their prodict is worth the...

    I may be the minority but I would for sure. It's like the $20.00 beer at the ball park, either you buy it or not. Someone might call the pricing a rep off but I don't consider it a rip off as long as there is still a choice to buy it or not.

    One only has to look at the facts of the current UAW strike to see your stroking of corporations is a load of BS. There are plenty of other examples of upper management greed other than just the auto companies. Sorry I'll be saving my Kleenex.
