Exploitation

Has anyone else ever noticed that when young, ignorant, privileged white UMC girls start going on about the “terrible exploitation” faced by people who are actively trying to better their economic circumstances, the desired result always seems to be cutting the bottom rungs off the economic ladder? (Talk about willful ignorance, too – yet another journalist proves to be a lying liar!)

I have a hypothesis that Fair Trade, etc., is simply the modern world’s version of patriarchal colonialism. It’s not like poor brown people can be trusted to make economic decisions for themselves, amirite? /sarc
