CIP Continues to Resist the Occupation

Several weeks ago, Dr. Eric Dennis and I posted our videos of our trip to Occupy Wall Street, where we debated protestors on subjects such as “the 1%,” nuclear power, and fossil fuels. Those videos have been a big hit–the most popular one already has over 7500 views! Not bad for a 13-minute discussion of energy.

This past weekend, I decided to visit my local group of Occupiers, Occupy Orange County. Here are two encounters I had: one about “people before profits” and one about the real cause of child labor. Enjoy and comment! More to come.

    When I try to explain people about child labor I pretty much get the same ridiculous reaction. And not just from hippies, also from those that claim to believe in free markets. In non-industrialized countries, where agriculture comprises nearly the entire economy, kids routinely work 12+ hours per day, everyday for mere subsistence. There’s a reason why there was a mass exodus from the farms to the factories during the industrial revolution amd it had nothing to do with force. Working 12 hours a day in a factory was far more appealing to many than working those same hours on a farm. And that’s to say nothing of all the goods and services suddenly and readily available to the new urban dwellers. Despite popular belief, child labor laws merely forced many kids to either choose between returning to the drudgery of the farm or begging on the street for change.
