What does this part say about the writer?

Quote
Marx argued that commodities—or products meant to satisfy “wants”—don’t derive their value from their use. That’s because by definition, they aren’t necessary for basic survival. Rather, they derive value from the invisible labor that goes into making them. Apple’s products take value from dirt, blood, sweat, and tears you don’t see on its clean, white packaging. They take value from human aches, pains, and fatigue.

Commodities like AirPods are social products. AirPods display the social message of wealth because AirPods derive their value from the invisible, social chain of production that’s necessary to make them in the first place.

Should this one be filled under the most meaningless rankings in the world?

Seriously? AA at #2 and KE close to the bottom?

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

I know they are crazy, but I thought N.K, which hates Israel for not being frum keep things like shabbos. Is there an eruv in downtown London, or where ever the BBC is that these types are fine to rely on?

Did they leave their signs there before shabbos...and it somehow did not get lost or taken away?

I know Jews tend to keep quiet but how come we don't see more people in the religious world speaking up and saying these aren't views we agree with?

You lend credibility to them by engaging, most people look at them as fringe fanatics

We do. Most people in our community know they are nuts. I meant for the outside world.
A  part of me feels like we should speak up and say, these aren't our people.
I don't know....

Good point about being more vocal that they aren't ours, but I thought they would at least keep Shabbos. I recall a few years ago about how they were demonstrating in Manhattan on friday night after nightfall with signs. Pretty crazy that people who hate Israel for religious reasons are involved with eisurei skilah.
