Slave labor = FREEDOM

At least to conservatives. See this Hartmann interview with a Heritage Foundation stooge. Thom doesn’t give him an inch on all his specious claims. Cheap foreign made products come to us as a result of slave labor. And that is justified so that we can have the freedom to choose to pay less for our selfish preferences? Yes, we are free to be self-indulgent assholes. That others work 16-hour days with no benefits and little to no health and safety protections is of no consequence in this narcissistic consumer world. And that is our freedom? What about the freedom of the slave laborers?
