For John, BLUF: Slavery is still abroad in this world, just more in other parts of the world than here at home. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The Wash Post, by Mr Adam Taylor, 19 July 2018.
Here is the lede:
North Korea has the highest prevalence of modern slavery in the world, with 1 out of every 10 citizens considered victims under the practice, according to estimates included in a new report.Yes, as horrible as a nuclear armed North Korea is, the human rights abuses under the Kim Family Regime is more horrible.
All that said, the final paragraph contains some interesting information.
The Global Slavery Index found that outside of North Korea, the countries with the worst prevalence of slavery were Eritrea, Burundi, the Central African Republic, Afghanistan, Mauritania, South Sudan, Pakistan, Cambodia and Iran. The report noted that other countries were often complicit through the import of goods at risk of being produced through forced labor — with the United States importing the most at-risk goods of any nations, with $144 billion a year.Maybe the Progs are rights. Maybe all those folks shopping at Walmart and Target are propagating slavery around the world. I say blame the Caucasians.
