Something I've been guiltily wondering about.
Is it possible to live in a modern, industrial society - and fully participate in it, I mean, not go live off the grid in a hippie commune or something - without relying on the products of slave labor/sweatshop labor/inequitable workplace practices? Because it seems like everything you buy that doesn't have a 'Fair Trade' label (and sometimes not even then) comes to us via someone being exploited horribly. I'm not comfortable with living off the suffering of fellow human beings. That way lies the violent fall of empires.
