SquiggsIN: Chocolate is hardly the only thing produced with slave labor (as above discussed) but for some reason we still keep buying precious metals and gems, electronics, chocolate etc because AMERICANS DON'T CARE what else on the planet they effect so long as we get what we want. Of course, this will eventually lead to a future where someone else in another country is willing to spend more than we can afford for things we need to survive because we can no longer produce the essentials for life ourselves.Take 5 minutes and look into local sourcing today. You might be surprised how much you can enrich your local community by spending your money near home. Jobs, tax dollars, and community development can be next door or halfway around the world; where do you want the money going?
Louisiana_Sitar_Club: Shostie: I only buy organic, fair trade chocolate bunnies hand-crafted by deposed former dictators of banana republics.Oh, so you don't mind that in order to give land to the deposed former dictators, they have to displace local artisans who are then forced to sell their children into slave labor making chocolate bunnies with lead for eyes?
