    And, according to John Oliver, even the chocolate companies that try to only source their product from child labor-free sources, they say they can’t guarantee it. That’s how much and how often children are used on these farms.

    After seeing that John Oliver report, I’m never eating chocolate again. All I would be able to do would be to think of those kids.

    And yes, I realize that other products I have are made from child labor, but chocolate is a pretty easy one to give up.

      If you think chocolate is bad, sugar is worse.

      What I’ve learned in the last few years is that every part of modern life has exploitation in it.

      There are very few parts that aren’t.

        “There is no ethical consumption under capitalism.”

        It’s not an air-headed anarchist/socialist slogan. It’s just the truth at scale.

            Because capitalists have had an effective propaganda campaign to make them think “made in the USA” is good. It don’t mean shit. We need the union label back.
