One of the things that is really, really getting my goat are the corporate giants like Amazon, Starbucks and Google who have taken to biting the hands that feed them by avoiding paying tax where their customers live.
Well it’s time to fight back. I haven’t quite managed to source an alternative to Amazon, but I do go out of my way to find a Costa outlet if I find myself in desperate need of a coffee.
You might think that Google, like Amazon, is difficult to replace, but that just ain’t so. I’ve switched to DuckDuckGo.com as my home and search page. It works just as well if not better than Google and doesn’t track its users.
More to the point, the company is still small enough to be ethical and doesn’t use immoral tax avoidance methods, so join the Give Google the Finger campaign.
