Following a prescribed responsibility recipe is impossible, and ripe with inconsistency, pompousness and hypocrisy. Humans are a species too, and commerce underwrites our collective existence. Given our planet's population of nearly 7 billion, your kid's Big Mac is helping MCD employees, shareholders, suppliers, franchisees, and perhaps your local heart surgeon and Jenny Craig counselor.
