Starting with Mash's original post, this was indeed a political 
discussion, and I've tagged it so.

My logic is this: While we certainly should agree Scripture requires 
virtuous action, and all the sacrifices that might entail, the issue at 
point here is defining "virtue" in terms of political-economic terms. 
While applying the Word to all of life, including our politics, is 
necessary, the degree of differences in opinion make this a de facto 
political discussion.

BTW, I would suggest there is virtually no way at all to avoid 
purchasing from the dehumanizing corporations, since they touch almost 
everything consumed by humans. That is, aside from niche producers who 
work directly with raw materials. Perhaps a few farmers using only 
natural methods and sell direct to the consumer can justify some claim 
of purity. I certainly agree most corporations bear a significant 
element of evil as Scripture defines it, if not all of them. I don't 
know the Lord requires me to seek ways to avoid trading with them, 
because the Bible scarcely addresses this issue, given it did not exist 
in ancient times. As with all essentially political issues, each must be 
convinced in his own mind.
