Isolated Incidents

Published: December 7, 2007, Author: JayTaber

Three recent news items caught my eye this week. One on Canadian mining corporations supporting murderous dictators around the globe, another on Yahoo selling the IDs of four dissident writers to the Chinese government, and a third on India‘s plans to clear indigenous people from the landscape. While none of this is especially surprising or unusual, the fact that one of the most consistent and vociferous voices against international human rights has been the US Chamber of Commerce, reveals a systemic lesson that is often lost in the plethora of isolated incidents.
