The Age of Consent

And if I told you all that went down
It would burn off both your ears


******

"Give me your name and I will give you a pig."

A Danish artist strikes a Faustian bargain with several hundred Ugandans.

Is attacked as being demeaning and racist.

Retorts that this is free trade in action, everyone ends up gaining.

Is this slavery?

Is it even ethical?

Why does it feel immoral?

There is always room in this world for sensationalism and hope.

******

Last fair deal in the country
Last fair deal in the town
Put your gold money where your love is, baby
Before you let my deal go down

the funny thing was that when i read this (story), i wasn't actually shocked. it's almost like i've gotten used to people being a mere part of a point being proven.. depending on who happens to be seeking the proof.

you're asking the wrong person :-) not only do i not have a clue, i'm a proud low-tech who's never used bloglines and prefers to skip around randomly by hand.

s:
yes, shocked isn't it. dismayed, more like.

gift:
or two, as in this case.

szerelem:
for sensationalism, for hope.
