Reports are starting to emerge about rampant corruption involved in the construction of some of the collapsed buildings following the devastating earthquake in China.
This should serve as yet another reminder that we should not be getting practically all of our goods from China until there are some major changes. Lead in children’s toys, poison in dog food, Iron instead of steel in a children’s school: All in the name of profit. When do we stand up and say enough is enough? The west has the ability to force a major overhall. We are the main consumers of Chinese goods. We should demand better, for ourselves and for the Chinese people who are suffering as well from rampant corruption and lack of regulation or adherence thereto.
Just try and go without “made in China”. At least think about where your goods come from and what it means when you purchase those goods.
