Re: Human rights don't make the world go round

It has actually been shown that sweatshops were an important part in allowing Hong Kong and Singapore to move from development countries to fully industrialised with a welfare today far surpassing many european countries.

Same thing happened in industrial revolution-era England. These days people are all too willing to impose modern rich first-world morality on developing countries who'd really rather be left to do things the way they need to. It's just another form of colonial missionary work.
