Well, now we're killing people

Because it wasn't bad enough that our entire economy is based on slave labor from people in other countries, it now turns out that we're killing them, too.

I do take slight issue with blaming this on "consumer demand". Min and i try, but it's basically impossible to buy most things in an "ethically sourced" way. I mean, i'll accept that we should try harder. But this is a systematic problem that needs to be dealt with in a systematic way, and that mainly has to do with our trade deals and other government policies. Blaming consumers is like how Al Gore told us we could stop global warming by turning off the lights when we leave a room. There's only so much individuals can do. (To be clear, again, this is a minor point. It's good that the report came out and hopefully it will be used to pressure our politicians.)
