    Am I the only person who finds this morally heinous!? Legality aside, why would you support a company overseas you knew were kidnapping children and turning them into slaves?!

    This is the real problem with the US. We want freedom, but there is always some company or person who thinks ‘well, since it’s not illegal; it must be legal…’ So we keep making more laws for what should be common sense.

    This is exactly why I buy things organic, non GMO, and with fair trade practices during the 6 months of winter, and shop locally at the farmers market the other 6 months out of the year!

      Sadly the US has a history of this. Ever looked into the Northern Marianas islands? A while back some US companies figured out that they could still put a Made in the USA tag on things made there since it was a US controlled territory. So tons of companies that we know and frequent in the US started sending chinese immigrants to work there. There was slave labor, and forced prostitution, and when a US senator tried to shut it down a right-wing lobby group started sending pamphlets to religious voters claiming that the bill being used to shut down this practice would prevent these people from “finding god”. Big Business is the enemy, anyone who doesn’t believe that is a shill or an idiot.

      “there is always some company or person who thinks ‘well, since it’s not illegal; it must be legal…’ ”

      Well yeah. There is legal and illegal. If it isn’t one, it is the other. It sounds like you might be talking about ethical and unethical, but that is a completely different topic.

        Obviously, she meant something akin to “If it’s not illegal, it must be ethical” or “okay.” But yeah, focus on the wording, not the substance.

          No, they didn’t “obviously” mean that. I’ve dealt with plenty of people that think because something is legal it is ethical and everything illegal is unethical. Different words mean different things, so yeah, the words you use in a sentence matters.
