It comes down to the fact that Apple is trying to assert control over the web using proprietary codecs and is trying to fend of competitors to its walled garden by blocking flash. They have no interest in what's best for the general consumer... they're just interested in their bottom line.
Apple is trying to assert control over their products, not the web. They have every right to do whatever they want with their products. Don't like it? Don't buy it.
Stating that they have no interest in what's best for the consumer is absurd. If that was true, they would have folded years ago.

Again, it's their garden, they have the right to remove anything they consider to be weeds.
