    I believe also that ethical people can work in unethical companies in unethical roles and use their position to influence for the better. It's easier to get your message across when you're on the inside rather than a pesky protester who management ignore.

    Alcohol industry I don't think is unethical necessarily.. I guess it depends on the kind of alcohol and how it's marketed, eg the way alcopops are marketed toward teenage girls.. Or how excessive drinking is sometimes glorified in the media, particularly when "role models" such as athletes do it.

    But if you're a 5th generation wine maker in a French vineyard I would hardly call you an unethical person or someone working in an unethical business.

    Tobacco is bad because it will 100% lead to deterioration of health and is dangerous to society as a whole because you can be affected by it just by being around someone who smokes.

    But alcohol industry.. I dunno. People do get addicted to alcohol but you can say that about sugar too (which is EVIL!).

    A fair point. But then would you say pimps and drugs dealers are innocent business people trying to meet society's demands?

    Not sure. Anyone using Ashley Madison is probably unethical. Is it unethical to provide a service to unethical people? Can you blame the service provider?

    - second thought yes I agree. Considering my stance on Judd's involvement in the beauty industry then yes the service providers have a role to play. Vehicles for unethical behavior are accountable too.

    Pimp profits from someone else business or insecurity. Def unethical.

    Drug dealers are death trafficking. They are also creating demand by letting their ppl try for free and get addicted on the product.

    I can see the parallel with Ashley Maddison but I guess less deaths in the business
