It also makes me think: if we can be so callous as to kill someone for a good deal, no wonder we don't care so much about children making our clothes and shoes and trinkets in sweatshops. No wonder we don't lobby for a living wage for factory workers in the developing world.
And no wonder manufacturing has moved overseas--where we can't see the poor working conditions but can reap the benefits in the form of cheap products...for which we are willing to sacrifice a life to get on sale.
I'm trying to get into the Advent spirit, but I just can't. What are we waiting for?
