U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sits down with CNN's Jim Clancy to explain what the annual Trafficking In Persons Report does and how the U.S. helps countries tackle their own slavery problems.

If you want to stop slavery, stop overpopulation. Overpopulation cheapens human life. It is no coincidence that slavery generally occurs the most in countries like India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal. There are too many humans!!! How can you possibly fight for human dignity when the socio-economic conditions are so unfavourable to human dignity? Human beings are like commodities on the market: the rares a commodity is, the higher its price.
More people + depleting resources = Fewer people who can afford the luxury of economic freedom and the dignity which comes with it.
As things stand, with politicians and other notables like Hillary blaming the malice of human beings, and not the most basic problem of overpopulation, slavery is GUARANTEED to become more widespread.
No, evil human nature and lifestyle are the problem. Prohibit all luxury if survival is wanted. Overpopulation must not be made an issue as it leads to unprecedented massacre, and actually it is not. This planet can sustain hundreds of billions of humans if only lifestyles are corrected.
Hate to say it but there's not a lot we can do about population in the near term (next generation of two) barring some sort of political or natural disaster. Pushing out education to help people see the big picture of their reproductive rights would cost, oh say, about as much as a giant, pointless invasion and eight year occupation of a mid- to large-sized country?
There's also not a lot we can do about the world-wide economy or political scene to fix this. The diminution of wealth we are undergoing across the world right now is part of the evolution of human culture. It may be the right-sizing that the world needs now.
This is kind of like saying "There's nothing we can do about committing global suicide," for this is what it basically means to allow population growth to continue. By the time the population swells, plateau's and declines down to much a much smaller size, planet earth will have been so badly damaged that it will no longer be able to sustain life. Furthermore, life will not be worth living on a planet which has been denuded of all its forests, its animals, its sealife and its infinite mysteries and wonders. I admit I feel very helpless and listless whenever I contemplate overpopulation and the most likely aftermath. But this is no reason to not confront the problem at all. At least thinking about it, talking about it and ruminating will get ones creative energy going. It will be clarified and perhaps tentative steps can be taken. All great things begin small.
China is slavery.
Yes, USA has been always a good guy, especially comparing to other nations. USA lately became too immoral to be followed by others now. No nation would want to be like USA nowadays. Prosperity is a woe without having moral character. If Americans are unhappy, they should blame themselves, not foreign factors.
I don't understand how they completely avoid the issue of slavery in the United States. Anywhere between 100,000 and 300,000 children and young teens are trafficked every year in this country, many of whom are poor and vulnerable girls from inner cities, often sold by their families or manipulated by pimps. In Baltimore the average age of entry into sex trafficking is 11!! We need to stop calling out other countries and redirect the lens on our own soil.
It's so sad here even the liberals are willing to fight against slavery but neglect far more defenseless humans – unborn babies – and leave them alone to be slaughtered. Hard to understand her mentality.
How are we the nation to follow when we promote homosexual behavior, transvestites and gay marriage. We need to stop pointing fingers and look inward.
We must consider the lives and wellbeing of those children on the outside of our bodies first and formost! And be sure the have clean water and good natritious food. Couples need to consider adopting an orphan or consider limiting the maximum children offspring to 2. We are a small planet with many mouths to feed. Would it be wonderful if we increase the quality and longegity of childrens lives by preventing them from having to drink contaminated water and have decent food with nutritioal value to build strond bodies and mings an extend life expectancy? I feel our citizens of our country really should see the logic and consider limitig chidren to 2 maximum and put value and priority to the chidren that need our help.
Code peaple versus TRANSCENDING COMANDER.Not to be confused with saturdays transformers. Nor any other meager mere superheroes.
Attention all code inclined crazies.The GOLDEN RULE,if not properly adheared to,will pretty much bring about the rapid excelleration and deterioration of the human race.Bearing in mind that heroes are something that many peaple eat and digest and with the neverending abundance of goodness,they are quite unecessary.
As the good book (the holy bible) rightfully says: be ye not deceived, for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
So if you commit a crime, despite what way you may want to justify it, you're going to PAY for it because it is WRONG!!! I didn't say so, that's what God said & that's the bottom line!!
shinning light used to to be a hearty fire, they screwed up.... indigence is what they will have.
Human Trafficking is the concern of every single people living on the planet call Earth Its us yes all of us who must fight against Human Trafficking not only a litle group of people and with education it will be done, and the world will be a free zone of Human Trafficking
One action will always promote a reaction, somehow and somewhere in our space and time.And yes!VERY TRUE,You always will always reap the ramification of what you do wronge.NO EXEPTIONS/EXEMPTIONS TO THE RULE OF CELESTIAL LAW.
