A moral question
As I walk up Tottenham Court Road, accosted on all side by the wielders of brochures for cheap international phone calls, "PC modding*", "mobile phone unlocking", and other obscure goods and services I'm unlikely to ever to use, should I:
1. Take one from the poor shivering individual waving it under my nose, on the ground that they'll thereby be able to get somewhere warm faster. (Since I suspect they are paid a piece rate.)
2. Refuse it on the ground that this is killing trees, wasting ink, the energy used to transport it here, etc?
* Slang for modification. (I had to look it up.)
