Criticism of Coca-Cola Criticism of Coca-Cola has arisen from various groups, concerning a variety of issues, including health effects, environmental issues, and business practices. The Coca-Cola Company, its subsidiaries and products have been subject to sustained criticism by both consumer groups and watchdogs, particularly since the early 2000s. Allegations against the company are varied, including possible health effects of Coca-Cola products,a poor environmental record,perception of the companies' engagement in monopolistic business practices,questionable labour practices (including allegations of involvement with paramilitary organisations in suppression of trade unions),questionable marketing strategies, andaccusation of violations of intellectual property rights. Perception of the company as behaving unethically has led to the formation of pressure groups such as "Killer Coke", product boycotts, and lawsuits.

The Conversation: In-depth analysis, research, news and ideas from leading academics and researchers. Hjerneforskningen er kun lige begyndt Giver det mening at stille kriminelle til ansvar for deres handlinger, når nu hjerneforskningen har vist, at vi ikke har fri vilje? Dette spørgsmål stiller Nikolaj Theil i kommentaren ’Amagermanden hinsides skyld’, bragt i Information d. 23.11. Årsagerne til kriminelle handlinger har oprindelse i hjernen og er ikke et udtryk for ’jegets’ frie vilje. Det giver derfor ikke mening at snakke om skyld og straf. Dette gælder ikke kun kriminelle, men alle mennesker og alle handlinger. Det er vores hjerner, som styrer rattet, og ’Vi’ er kun med som passagerer på bagsædet, lyder argumentet. Men her er en fundamental fejl: Selv om hjernen beskrives som årsag til alle handlinger, glemmer forfatteren at fortælle, hvad der menes med ’Jeget’. Denne idé spores tilbage til de antikke filosoffer, men er især forbundet med den franske filosof René Descartes. Har vi fri vilje? Hvad mener vi, når vi taler om at have fri vilje? Hjerneforskningen har ikke modbevist, at vi er ansvarlige for vores handlinger.
