More serious problems?

: your reply describes Mcspotlight as merely presenting points of view. If that is the goal then obviously there is no problem. However, if you attack an entity with intent to make them conform to your own ideals (ie. active protests, slandering on T.V.) then there is a problem. If Mcspotlight is merely trying to "heighten awareness about a PERCEIVED problem", then why the need for organized groups, court trials, etc..? The entire campaign to attack a fast food company is unworthy while there are more serious problems that affect all of us which we can not choose to avoid as easily as not patronizing a fast food place. All of our ability to debate and disagree is a step to common ground which could lead to positive progression. It seems wasteful to use our ability on two peoples "PERCIEVED PROBLEM" which is self inflicted. Why Mcdonalds? Why not crime? Why not corruption?
