Why burgers? And if you really must have burgers, you could try making them yourself.

What is going to happen? McDonald's suddenly get an ethical consious?
The entire worlds population go vegan? Multinationals end their exploitation of the 3rd world?

which is? to provide huge profits for the few while exploiting the poor?

condemning you to what? A world where the resources of the world not
exploited for the benefit of the few, but are shared in a responsible
and sustainable fashion between all inhabitants of the plant?

There is nothing McDonald's or companies like McDonald's could do to
make me happy (apart from go bust). The capitalist nature of such
multinations is incompatible with how I want the world to be.
And what is this 'group' you refer to?
