I suppose we do these dumb things for two reason - money and because we can. Neither of these reasons are very good and will do us more harm than not.
Can you imagine the "Oops, we're sorry. We did not anticipate the results of a spill from our GM fish lab into the Atlantic Current. It seems that all fish have been infected with a newly formed virus and that it may take years for the ocean to produce new life on its own. And, well - we have no idea on what impact this will have on other forms of life on the planet, including us. But the Mechanical Engineering Soceity said they will study making mechanical fish to compliment their failed idea about artificial trees to reduce CO in the atmosphere.
Risks Involved With Transgenic Fish
Killing, slaughtering dolphins just because you can and have done so is no longer acceptable global behavior!
Although dolphins belong to the same family as whales, they are not protected by the international ban on commercial whaling.

Did you know China wanted to lease hundreds of thousands of acres of land in Madagascar to farm and import food for themselves - a revolution ensued and the dust has not yet settled.

I'll check out but is this another case of what are we fighting for - people who want to use us to settle scores by turning in their competitor or personal enemy as a terrorist?
Linnea's work is mind blowing in detail.
The General hits ot right when he says that each time we diverge from our central American values - we get in trouble with everyone, not just muslims.

The term "modern-day slavery" refers to the status or condition of a person who is under the control of another person, where that control is enforced by violence or psychological coercion. Here in the 21st century, the main forms of modern-day slavery are chattel slavery, debt bondage, and child labor. Human trafficking, another major dilemma, serves as a pipeline for many forms of slavery today. And while some of these forms of modern slavery occur in other parts of the world, our own country is deeply implicated in this abhorrent practice.
Debt bondage, or bonded labor, is the most widely practiced form of modern slavery around the world. In Southeast Asia, where it is most prevalent, Anti-Slavery International estimates that debt bondage claims an estimated 15 to 20 million victims.
