Gonna have to blame the parents here, their the ones who put them into the situation, they could just as easily walk away one night. It's only one guy, what's he going do, track you down and bring you back, wouldn't be worth his time.

After a quick Google of what exactly is Bonded Labour, they just have to make it to any country where it's illegal, which is almost all of them. Easier said than done I'm sure, but where there's a will there's a way.

xCYBERDYNEx: That kind of 'poverty', here in America, is obviously nowhere near the dirt poor poverty that these people live in. Homeless people in America eat better out of the dumpsters here than most people in third world countries can with an average wage.

There will always be poor and rich, for reasons that are obvious to even the casual observer.

I've seen 'poor' people here in America win the lottery for millions of dollars and then piss it all away within a few years ending up just as poor if not poorer than they were before.

I've also seen rich people loose it all in the stock market and then bounce back because of who they were friends with and after a few years become rich again.

"If that was true, obviously they'd all do it. Certainly very few people would choose to live in poverty given a free choice".

Have you ever been to America? Theirs parasites all over this country that live in poverty for the sole purpose of drawing welfare and Gov benefits. I've heard a woman brag about living in Gov housing, living off of welfare, which was a "Family tradition", and still being able to have a 50 inch flat screen tv.

Don't boycott pakistani cotton made items. It won't effect that situation.

Sbeelz, I'm with Oystah on this one. They probably don't have access to birth control, but just because a man and a woman are living in the same room together doesn't mean they have to have sex. If I were living in those types of conditions, having sex would be the LAST thing on my mind. The adults obviously know that sex creates babies, so why do they keep doing it? I think I would rather be beaten to death than to bring a child into that kind of environment.

auburnjunky, it is true that lincoln was a republican but he was the liberal choice in that election against breckinridge of the southern democrats (the conservative party).

This whole thing looks contrived and well scripted to me, down to the amazing quality of the film itself. The kids are smiling while talking; no one has bruises or looks beaten. This family has better clothes, housing and household goods than I saw in Afghanistan. And even if the kids were "Allowed" to go to school, Pakistan has one of the worst school systems in the world. Most "schools" don't have books, supplies or even a building. Children sit outside on the ground and listen to a teacher read to them (mostly religious texts). Is this part of a Bollywood movie someone spliced and edited?

Maybe I'm totally missing the point, or I'm ignorant to this whole subject matter but...it's just ONE little man slaving them. One man. Why can't they just overcome him, see how he likes beating?

@nottaspy: Conservatives want fair wages for all.

How did they get in this discussion? Oh I know! Misinformation!

@auburnjunky, my bad. I was talking about the current Republican party which is indistinguishable from conservatives. I should have said "a conservatives wet dream".

@mcgovern:

I agree with you. I get a tax credit of $2500 per child. I don't deserve it, but they just give it.

The EIC (earned income credit) and all other entitlement programs that have been expanded to out of control proportions, should be reeled in.

Here's a question why the f**k are we pretty much paying people to breed no offence AJ but how are more people going to fix our problems?? Not to mention some people who aren't fit for life are being encouraged to breed parasites they can't even raise.

I think it's to assuage some sort of unease about being so vastly better off. If you can blame them strenuously enough, you can ignore the discrepency.

Dude, this isn't the late 19th century.


Dude, water is wet.

Equally true and equally irrelevant.

There was more capitalism in the USA in the late 19th century than there is now. That's why the abuses were so blatant.

Here's another example - England, later middle ages. ~1100 to late 14th century. Lots of capitalism in that time. Read about it. Amazingly, not everyone was rich! Imagine that!

@Angillion: Don't make excuses for lazy people.


You're more devout than an evangelical preacher.

You're actually arguing that anyone in the USA who isn't an ultra-rich CEO is lazy. You're really doing it. I didn't think you'd go that far.

There are examples of wealthy noblemen complaining about the laziness of serfs in medieval England. Of wealthy Romans complaining about the laziness of their slaves. Etc, etc.

@Oystah- Do you think that these people really have access to birth control?
