Fairtrade isn't

Alex Singleton on how Fairtrade isn't:
"Fairtrade is, in other words, a front organisation, crafted by unregenerate collectivists to con believers in nice capitalism to buy something which is neither nice nor capitalist. And the way to deal with cons is to expose them for what they are, so that only those who really do believe in the actual values being promoted here continue to support the thing."
Communism didn't disappear when the Berlin wall fell. It went underground into environmental and anti-globalization organizations in an effort at rebranding. It is the same-old-same-old.
