Hmm... can't tell whether to get involved in this discussion or not. On one hand I have fairly good arguments, on the other hand my side is hated, and I'll probably not represent it well anyway.
But, I do believe heavily in chivalry... my own strange kind of chivalry. Anarcho-chivalry, basically take that social darwinism stuff and combine it with a revolutionary thought-line that encourages constant uprising to make sure that the people in charge are actually fit for it.
Of course then the chivalry adds the spin of attempting to protect the weak, which seems hypocritical; but that's really about protecting humanities potential. Very powerful things and ideas come from strange places, so keeping all of the resource (people) safe is an important part of the system, even if the people don't do as well in a competitive society they have to be given their chance to fight society and achieve something on their own.
So in conclusion: Things could be better, but that would be unrealistic.
Edit: I feel like a failure of a writer looking back and seeing how error filled that paragraph was...

Probably most of the things you own, clothes, video games, utensils, and so on were made in China, which is infamous for exploiting its people. Also the reason it's cheaper than it could be if it were made here. Much of our trash is shipped off to 3rd world countries, some of which is toxic. The reason America became an economic powerhouse was due to the profits of slavery. Animal testing, while not involving humans(most of the time) is still an inequality. Many scientific discoveries have been due to it. You get the picture.
Summarized, money makes the world go 'round, regardless of how said worth is obtained. Exploitation is just one of many means.
You make no sense. Money talk is never boring.Originally Posted by Splash_King
