Julia Ormond: Slavery like virus in supply chain

Actress Julia Ormond, known for her roles in "Legends of the Fall" and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," has been an activist against human trafficking since the 1990s. 

In an interview with CNN's Richard Quest, she talks about how the consumer, government and business all play roles in ensuring the supply chain for goods is free of slavery.

"I ... think it's really important that the consumer acknowledges how challenging this is for business," she says. "I think it's important that we understand it as this is like a virus that affects the supply chain. It's not like business is going out there and looking for slavery. The environment that the supply chain is in enables slavery.

"We need business mentality at the table to finding solutions," she adds. "It's not the NGO's role to work out what's the best solution for that industry. They know their supply chain intimately. ... They are sitting on the solution."

    i want everyone who can understand this notation that i bring forth to all human kind.that i did not ever have not one degree to have the knowledge with in me to call my self the key freedom of all worry's.to simplify this some more i have never even had a high school degree or even a g.e.d

    i have the knowledge to solve every problem that lifes existence ever had.people are going to read this and say im crazy but just tha last nite i was able to move the cloudes with the winds currents to see the beauty in what we all call starss..i would give only one key to solve the problems and debt of our home land "The United States Of America". i been watching and listening to everyone with out knowing any of the speakers in the U.S.House. i do not have to hear everyones personal opinion i already no what they are..please do not look at me as someone higher the anyone who reads this notation because there are a lot of peaple who beleave already in what im about to say..

    first and formost i am a strong beleaver in god and what our ancient ancisters to this day without there persent are trying to teach us. they say we should always learn from our history and improve it and this is why i am chosen..
    i love history because in tha begaining of all civilisation's we all respected each other loved one another and if we need it anything from each other we traded individuall our own personal goods to each other with perfect estimates without useing scales..
    people all over the world trade there goods so they too can love the other naturely goods from around the world. people think that money is the key to all things..well sorry money is the rule of all evil thats why ladies and gentalman is the reason everone is at war with each other.
    people say america is broke or own other people around the world money..people of "The United States Of America please take time out to remove money from your minds..and let me show everyone how rich this land of the free we call America can solve all problems with in this counrty as well as others. "I have Cures"
    that so many doctors would not mind and love to give it away for freely cuz they them selfs hurt when the meds they are beleaved to help people nurse they self back to heath do not work..

    And for the most improtants key of today""EDUCATION"'
    who even said or dared to put a price on knowledge it is out given right from "GOD him self"to have for free.. and there are a lot of teachers that are willing to voluntear to teach to the youth which are the keys to a perfected future..

    Remember i am only 24 years old, be my guess and have people with degrees who have studie these things with an opened mind for as longer then i been alive and ask them if these thing are trule or false or can these things even gives all of us what we all beleave is true..i dont have not one degree in anything but i am happy with life because
    i beleave that some one is going to beleave and know who i am and are going to be willing to help me solve all problems we as a human's as in the whole world has ever had....
    i depart with the up most respect to the reader,listener and most of all,all beleavers of all religion's and nationalities "may god be with you and you forever with him"

    this number are for the powers who can
    help me help them in a matter of months
    if not weeks fix all things faster then what
    we think cant happin in a matter of
    minutes and thats the most powerfull and
    fastest way that not even NaSa can grip
    and they been trying for years how to
    move faster then light it self but ill give
    them the key elements to bring the stars to
    all of us in this world without even

    To add, Since ancient times humans have experiment with the ability to dominate and syndicate others though physiology and subordination, then basic weaponry forming armies to either defend or defeat to fulfill quests, now with extremely sophisticated weapons of mass destruction with the same role in mind. Here and now we are faced with the dilemma of race, religion, and equality, there will never be peace in the world, and religions will always divide equality. To answer humanity concerns, is to decide their faith, and their faith is is upon them like a heavy burden. Only the coming Armageddon will settle this dispute till every living thing turns to dust. The earth is doomed to become like any other planet in our solar system, still for eternity.
