Subversion in Capitalism is hard, episode whatever

Saul Williams clearly tries to be a subversive voice, has lots of interesting things to say and makes interesting music. According to his website, I can order his new album:

  • digitally from iTunes, a platform of a company that has tried hard (and continues to try hard) to attain monopoly status for its users and has its hardware products produced in pretty disgusting conditions
  • on Vinyl on Amazon.com, a company that exploits its wage labor mercilessly and fights tooth and nail against any kind of labor regulation that would improve said labor’s lot, using any loopholds they can find along the way
  • on Google Play, the platform of a company that tries hard to keep its monopoly and whose “don’t be evil” is only a l distant memory

leaving me with having to identify the lesser evil…
