Something which just occurred to me:

Why is it, that when there is an issue of objectification of women's bodies or lack of representation of some underprivileged group we justify this with "Oh, it sells. You can't expect the company to have a conscience, can you? The media is just being lead by the culture," but when some business does something slimy (Google caving to the Chinese censorship demands, some random corp screwing its workers or people living nearby over, etc) we demand they behave ethically? I mean after all, isn't that just them maximizing their profits?
