Most corporations are to some extent corrupt and socially irresponsible. Some of these clowns, though, actually produce useful and necessary goods, and so I can see some justification for dealing with them. I'm not condemning anyone for their behavior. It is just that I simply do not understand why a reasonbly intelligent human would choose to do something like ating the "food" that McDonald's serves. I will not deny having ever eaten at fast food places. When I was a child fastfood was presented to me as normal and healthy, and I continued that habit for a long time before I started really thinking about my actions. And so when I see someone engaged in what I beleive to be unreasonable behavior, is that person just continuing a chidhood habit or do they have a justified reason for doing so that is perhaps incomprehensible to me. In the case of McDonald's, I find in unlikely that any such reasons could go beyond "convenience".
