While
non-Americans might find the corp's use of prisoners indistinguishable
from slavery, involuntary labour is a fervently held tradition in the
US. And it's very cheap. Obligations to shareholders take precedence
over basic human decency.

Americans are just following Britain's example. You know, British navy
impressment and all that.
The Anglosphere loves cheap labor. The cheaper the better. The
Anglosphere kills for cheap labor. The City's Lord Mayor once had to
overrule his servile King and butcher Wat Tyler in order to keep wages
low.

Thank you,
