No argument. However, that belongs in an article that you can write separately. I wouldn't take issue with this at all. But this thread isn't about that. This is about health. You're discussing colonialism and racist policies, which at some very fundamental levels are woven throughout all industry. You can go back to all the papal decrees which justified planting a fluttering piece of cloth in order to grow sugar and enslave the locals as long as it paid the church. True dat. But this isn't the thread for that. I recommend you do the research and write the article yourself. I've also written about that, but this article isn't designed to take on those topics or else it would be War and Peace.
