Well, I think people should answer this carefully because buying things that are made in China and other places with bad human rights issues isn't terribly different.

I do realize there are differences in this case, and a lot more injustice comes from it, but still, enslaving people to work for you and only paying cents a day isn't the greatest thing in the world.


Buying tennis shoes that are manufactured by sweatshops in authoritarian countries is bad, yes.

But I don't think that it is comparible to just standin' there, mindin' your own. When all of a sudden 3 dudes come out of nowhere subdue you, put a hood over you head, so you can't see, throw you in the back of a van and whisk you away to "an undisclosed location" and beat the total livin' shit outta ya. Next thing you know is you are on an airplane for a very long time and haven't seen the light of day in over 24hrs. For starters maybe a stopover: Ahhh, "The Emerald Isle" Shannon Airport, Ireland or tour scenic Germany from the inside of your very own steel shipping container at bustling Ramstein or Rhein-Main Air Base. Only ultimately to end up at an even more undisclosed area in some country like Thailand, Afghanistan, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Syria, Yemen, Kosovo, Uzbekistan, Romania or Bulgaria. And then the real fun begins, you know, of the 12 Volt Die Hard and jumper cable variety. Can't forget the old blowtorch and pliers and gettin medieval on a motherfucker, either.

The really funny part is that they don't always even have the right guy. But what the fuck? It's the war on terror, right?Idea
