EP...I did not move any goalposts...You were talking human trafficking...I was talking slavery which includes everything that falls into that category including child slavery...or if you prefer the term...'child labour'...sounds a bit nicer doesn't it?
While we are at it...I would also include Child soldiers in the slavery category...
Ah, so when you chose to split human trafficking and child labor stats from unicef into two different categories in your earlier posts, were you just not aware that you did, was it simple incompetence? You initially split them and suddenly when the numbers demonstrate that your position is flawed, you want to merge them? That's the definition of moving the goalposts, especially since you were the one that posted the unicef numbers as separate topics.
As I said, you can do that, but then you need to do the math to make it relevant.
I don't see how using your statistics achieves anything...
That's not my problem. You can choose to educate yourself so you will understand, but your lack of knowledge it not my problem.
Lets say we had 500 road deaths last year...and this year that number dropped to 450...statistically that is an improvement...but is it really? We still had 450 road deaths this year. Go and tell their relatives that it's an improvement...
Awwww... look at you being all adorable and trying to play the emotion card!
Tell you what, since you want to play that game, go tell the 50 people who would have died that they don't deserve to. Go telll their kids that mommy and daddy should died and they should be orphans. Or, since they DIDN'T die, you could look at 50 more parents, childrend, brothers, sisters and grandparents that are alive as an improvement.
I doubt you will, however, since you are determined to see the world as a horrible place. I wonder what is wrong with you, what happened to turn you into this bitter person that can't see the good in anything.
I can see why you form the arguments that you do. Why you need to play with statistics.
Because the way to know if something is getting better is to measure it. And you have to know HOW to measure it. Concepts beyond you, apparently. You can learn them if you like. I will teach you. Besides that, math is fun. You can do all sorts of interesting things with it.
Thinking that you are so superior to another person that YOU think that that is morals....that self induced superiority gives you the right to claim that YOU are educating someone else....and then if they don't listen to YOU they need to be disciplined.
I don't think I am superior to anyone. If you feel that I think I am, that's your right. If I know something you don't (in this case, how and why to measure things) and I explain it to you, I am not necessarily educating you, I am giving you the opportunity to learn. Whether or not you take advantage of that opportunity is up to you.
And I never said you needed to be disciplined. I think you misunderstood. I said that saying what you were going to do, giving a warning and then keeping your word about the next action was similar to the way you discipline a small child. Regarding you I specifically said I was going to mock you for being willfully ignorant, and I did. I said what I was going to do, warned you and then did it. Truthful, honest and delivered on my word.
If you cannot see that that behaviour is similar to the attitude that feeds slavery then there really is no point in this discussion. Although I had that feeling already after your display of 'discipline' earlier.
Wow, I take back everything I said. You really are just dumber than a bag of hammers. No one is oppressing you or holding you down or forcing you to post stupid things. You have been given the opportunity to learn and wasted it. That is your right as a free person. As a free person, you also get to suffer the consequences, good or bad, of your actions. Too bad you don't like it.
God help the children in this world if this is the type of discipline that is metered out to them.
Of course not. Children need help, guidance, love and encouragment. You, as an adult, are choosing to be willfully ignorant. Totally different situation.
Now by all means...begin to throw your toys of of the cot like you did earlier...I am not listening to you...I see no 'value' in it.
I know you don't. Being bitter and negative all isn't helping you to get over that, either.
