Child Labor?
    #1336924 - 02/26/03 07:30 AM (15 years, 3 months ago)

I'm wondering what some people's opinions are on child labor througout the world. Personally, I feel its a shame that some children have to work (in harsh or even dangerous conditions) to support themselves, but is there a solution? Many people advocate boycotts to pressure companies into not buying materials made with child labor. But does anybody take the kids futures into account? Not every country has an economy as good as the U.S. Some kids throughout the world *HAVE* to work to live. Some people would just as well have these countries ban child labor and then forget about the children who would go on to starve to death now that they have no way to make money for themselves or perhaps their disabled parents.

So lets all stop buying nikes, gap clothes, etc.... and not provide any more insight to the solution. It's sure to solve all the problems of the child laborers in the world.

It's better those kids die of starvation than be tools for greedy capitalists. :wink:  BOYCOTT EVERYTHING!!! 

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.
