Exploitation is not a principle of laissez-faire, which also has a moral and ethical component to it.

Yes. For those who are inclined to be moral and ethical that is.

You are confusing trading with trafficking.

Trafficking is trading. I wasn't talking about lap dances at your corner titty bar.

I was talking about involuntary sexual servitude.

"Trafficking is trading."
Not really.


Human trafficking is the business of stealing freedom for profit. In some cases, traffickers trick, defraud or physically force victims into providing commercial sex. In others, victims are lied to, assaulted, threatened or manipulated into working under inhumane, illegal or otherwise unacceptable conditions. It is a multi-billion dollar criminal industry that denies freedom to 24.9 million people around the world.

Either way it is a transaction involving a willing seller and a willing buyer. With the victim being the "good" that is being traded.


Free enterprise is not always cute and fluffy. There is some criminality or civil violation in almost every underground transaction.

Go ahead, believe trafficking humans, in the manner described above, is trading. Not one normal moral person will agree with you. The underground economy is selling goods and services that others want, whether it is loose cigarettes or a meal prepared by a chef. 99.99% of this type of economy is simply bypassing government regulations and interference to commit commerce unimpeded.

Or to save or earn a few extra bucks that legally may not belong to you.

How can what one earns not belong to them?

It does belong to them. But stiffing your creditors is not legal, moral and ethical.
