Children abducted and sold by gangs
The China they don't want us to see
In What Ways are People Affected?
Is Anything Being Done About the Problem?
Breif History of Government Policies
There aren't any policies or laws against child abduction that are free for the public to be informed of, but it is thought that the reason gangs and other people abduct children and sell them in underground markets is due to the fact that the Chinese government has a 1 child per family policy and a lot of the citizens aren't happy with that so they buy kids because they aren't allowed to conveice anymore because the government will make them give them up. So in hindsight, this whole situation is the government fault.
Who's Affected, How Many People are Affected?
Gangs target children, mostly boys, to abduct and bring to thriving underground markets that they have created to sell and buy them. It's unknown how many children have been or currently are in this trade.
Well personally, China having the policy that each family is permitted to only one child is bull. How are you going to tell someone how to live their life, dictating their personal decisions. That's like saying you can only be Christian or wear green sweaters during the week day. So the Chinese government needs to realize that this whole predicament is a logical result of this policy. So for one, I think they should abolish that policy and probably the accumulation of children being abducted will probably increase by 30-40% because the main clients in their black markets are people wanting to "unconstitutionally" adopt more children and sex slave people. So if 1 of the 2 main buyers was eliminated, there goes almost if not half of their "product".
This issue connects to the industrial revolution because these kids in China are being forced into sex slavery or being sold to strangers and forced to live with them and act like nothings wrong just as the children in the factories were forced to work and labor against their will with no positive outcomes. Another connection is if these kids are being abducted, they can't go to school, just as the children of the industrial revolution were deprived of an education because they were stuck laboring Instead.
