But...why would they be fair? If I was in business I would try to crush my 'opponents' every possible way

Where's the line though? Sure we're talking about money here, what about human/animal rights, responsibility and such. Just because something you want is "great and cheap" but the money goes to devaluing your economy, eliminated jobs or controlling lives, even destroying them in unsafe conditions means that it doesn't matter?

This is not the case in question, I'm just saying, when is it no longer acceptable to buy from a manufacturer.

Depends on the circumstances of course.

I stopped buying any Maple Leaf products when they shut down that plant out in Sask because they didn't like the fact it was unionized, same with Pot of Gold chocolates... they lost my business completely when they shut down the HFX plant to move production to Mexico.

My "principle" purchasing decisions are all labour related.
