Definitely: everyone should pick her/his fights. I was just expressing
my (strong) disagreement with such a generalised statement, which doesn't
pay respect to those who sometimes choose the difficult path, to the
benefit of us all.

I did not take the original statement to disrespect those who contribute.
Instead I took it as a criticism of background processes in our society and economy: mass-marketing and lack-of-choice (ineffective but enforced product buy-in, in this case).
