No one's said it so I will ... BANG BANG! :)

It's hard to know the right thing to do - there are so many behind-the-scenes links. How about our superannuation investments? With the constant rounds of backroom wheeling and dealing who knows what some massive parent company that owns the subsidiary conglomerate that owns the company that your super funds are investing in?

Of course it's fair enough to make spending decisions based on ethical considerations and to make people aware of the links when you find out. I'm glad none of my gear is of any of those brands, even if my taxes go into defence spending. I don't want to spend more in the warfare industry than I have to.
