Sex Trafficking

Nicholas Kristof, New York Times columnist, says sex traffic is the preeminent problem of the 21st Century. Nicholas Kristof is an idiot. Girls and boys sell their bodies because it pays better than the alternatives. If they did not sell themselves for sex, they would not be leading rosy lives. They'd live miserable lives because they live in miserable societies and have miserable skills. Most societies and most persons for most of human history have been miserable. That is the norm. America and the Western World are exceptions to the human condition. America is about as close to utopia as is possible.
