Why Make the Italian Kids Cry?
It was revealed today that two Bulgarian sisters were being exploited by an Italian circus near Naples. They had been forced to swim with piranhas and stand in a cage of snakes without their consent. Truly death defying, even for trained performers.
However upsetting this is, let us speak to the concept of utilitarianism. Every concept ultimately has its goods and bads, its ups and downs - but, what is the sum? People must have been getting one of the most amazing shows in the world! Piranhas, Snakes AND risotto?!? I'd pay millions to watch such a spectacle.
The question is: why on earth weren't these poor women making the amount they deserved? In a country where mullets are fashionable, the government falls yearly and high fashion meets socialism this question is predictably unanswerable.
Anyway, I don't have much time to write tonight, but seriously, look at this story!!
I would have written many pages if I could have.
