    Anyway, what were these people who suffer horrible lives carrying water etc doing before the western world developed its monetary systems to compensate people of their time given to you for work? I don't think the way of life in these societies has declined as a result of our industrialisation per se, these people were self sufficient before otherwise they would have died out. People benefited in the west from working the system to their favour and globalisation has caused these two different worlds to collide.
    As just one example, what about communities that are displaced and basically moved somewhere else to rot when a western mining company moves in?
