The China infant milk scandal, even though it has so far not damaged any American babies, has exposed a major defect in the concept of free trade. It’s dangerous to buy products from a nation whose economy is not based on Judeo-Christian morality.
Yeah, take that, Japan, with your dangerous, non-Christian Honda Accords and your shoddy, non-Judeo electronics!
The American private enterprise system depends on honesty as normal and accepted behavior. We don’t have or want a policeman on every corner, or an army of government officials to inspect every bottle of baby formula or tube of toothpaste.We do have regulations and random checks, but the majority of producers and sellers are restrained from criminality by adherence to the Judeo-Christian ethic.
It’s nice to know that the 108-year-old Phyllis is just as sharp as she’s ever been.
