"At age 10, these kids are already working 12 hours a day..."

At the head of an association called Il Tappeto di Iqbal, "Iqbal’s carpet", named after a Pakistani child-slave who led a revolt and was subsequently murdered, Giovanni Savino has angry words for the mafia, a failing education system, and a state "which abandons its children."

How child labour is a thing of the present in Naples

"According to research to be published in Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, scientists across New York, Essex and California have found evidence that gay men and lesbians remind homophobes of themselves, causing an aversive reaction and instilling fear.

"The study also claims that the root of the problem lies in the homophobic attitudes in which they were brought up as a child."

Study: Homophobes probably harbour same-sex attraction

"There were 47,500 cases of non-polio paralysis reported in 2011, the same year India was declared “polio-free,” according to Dr. Vashisht and Dr. Puliyel.

"Further, the available data shows that the incidents tracked back to areas were doses of the polio vaccine were frequently administered. The national rate of NPAFP in India is 25-35 times the international average.

"So did polio vaccines trigger these new cases of paralysis?

"Related studies in India have already demonstrated that polio vaccines are the leading cause of polio paralysis."

"The claim that homophobic people are in secret attracted to members of their own sex, though they refuse to admit as much, will receive support from a series of psychological studies to be published later this month.

According to research to be published in Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, scientists across New York, Essex and California have found evidence that gay men and lesbians remind homophobes of themselves, causing an aversive reaction and instilling fear."

If I were a gambler I would stake a big bet that the Kinsey Institute was involved in this erm "research"

Regarding the story at the link:

The Italian case: the failure of the capitalist system

Now, this quote from the piece got my attention.

"Wage-earners, however improved their wages may be, are a type of slave."

I can't agree with that.

"however improved their wages may be"

Working for others, producing goods & services at beneficial wages, trading those goods & services, or paying with legal tender for desired goods & services.

Good wages makes the working man a solid and valued member of his community.

Given that many work for wages, I would not kick off the prospect of higher wages, and, most important, a higher living standard.

You can live a good life working for others. Of course, you can be self-employed, and have a good life as well.

At any rate, somehow, these 10 people, could get a little less and the workers get a little more and the economy picks up because consumer spending is 2/3rds of the economy, standards of living increase, as goods & services are traded or bought across the economic spectrum.

This allows thoses so inclined to engage in the pursuit of providing better goods & services (and profits) within the markets of goods & services they choose to compete in.

Let's not throw the baby out with the bath water.

It's the abuses that need to be addressed.

And, better wages, productive workers, a better economy.

If stop and reflect on this a moment, to accept such a childish explanation would mean that since we fear murderers we must secretly wish to be one and are terrified of our inner murderer. Since we shun the crack addict we must secretly want to be a crack head.

While we flee a hurricane it simply validates that secretly we wish to perish in one. We obviously avoid the Burmese python because we wished to be choked by one etc etc etc. As you see this idiocy could go on and on and on.

Perhaps it is just so simple, some see sodomy as an unacceptable life style which if expanded would lead to the extinction of the human race, chaos and other ills. Perhaps some just notice the difference in right and wrong or maybe Of course it is a matter of perception, just as there is a distinction in perception between the genius and the idiot.

The same actor who plays Osama bin Laden plays Obama. Sometimes even the actors in the media slip up and get it wrong, and then quickly correct their mistake, because they know the truth. Check out the details on my blog:
