Captain Hruska Carswell, Continuance King

We live in an a Reaganesque hyper free market era, now affirmed once again by Trumpism. Why not an Ebay style auction for the kidneys of unemployed coal miners?


It is good to exploit the organs of humans in poor countries, while offering "first world" health care to a limited number of them. SOrt of like capitalism in China.

Question: Why did Kristine agree to donate her kidney?

Kim Krawiec

Presumably, anon, for the same reason anyone donates as part of a kidney swap - she didn't want her husband to die

Captain Hruska Carswell, Continuance King

We act so high handed and officious when it comes to selling human organs on the open market to the highest bidder. "Oh NO!! It's exploitation." That's hogwash. We allow impoverished human beings in Mexico and China to break down our "recycled" heavy meatal contaminated electronics. We allows folks in Bangledash or Vietnam to produce our clothing in seat shops. We allow folks to mine dangerous minerals for consumer goods.... I can go on and on.
