Children at risk from consumerism and corporations
This is an article from a while ago from the New York Times, which makes the argument that corporate interests threaten children. The article highlights the examples of marketing of harmful products like junk food and psychotropic drugs to children, and government reluctance to regulate harmful chemicals. It may be an obvious point, but until we as a society take serious measures to protect kids (and the rest of us) from corporate immorality, we need to keep harping on this point and fighting to control corporate impunity.
