EDITORIAL: When businesses take a sharp political turn
by Don Lon Boy
When a prominent showbiz personality gives a platform to plunderers, murderers, and corrupt officials to propagate their lies for millions of people to see, is it an act of "neutrality?" Is it necessary to hear "their side of the story?" Do we choose to "humanize" their actions?
We break down the myth of neutrality and the role of businesses in shaping our political landscape in Midyum Digital Magazine Editorial 01: When businesses take a sharp political turn.
"Our choices are heavily political and every choice is a statement. It's just a matter of who benefits from the consequences. We either stick around the status quo and become complicit to the suffering of the oppressed or go for what is right. Either way, neutrality is just a myth."
