Ferragamo and Boss.
Volkswagen and Fiat.
I'm not sure I can make peace with the fact that these companies supported dictators (Ferragamo and Boss indirectly) and are still respected today. Volkswagen and Fiat were, in fact, essential tools of propaganda for the dictators. Can a company be completely apolitical and amoral? Should it be?
I understand that these companies were later taken over, but its still something I struggle being comfortable with.
So what do you do with the good stuff that bad(!!!) people left behind? What do you do with the art? And the technology? Is the intention not important? Should it be seen in isolation?
I doubt there are any clear answers.
