WELCOME. YOU HAVE DISCOVERED A RAW MANUSCRIPT IN PROGRESS.
This body of words deals with themes of addiction and escalation, scrutinising the interface between fast porn, human trafficking and global debt exploitation. It focuses on case studies and perspectives from developed nations, rubbing up against the perilous misconception that trafficking is exclusively a third world problem. While it focuses on sex crimes, I hope people will also take time to remember the 20-odd million slaves working in forced labour, and the countless billions more indirectly racketeered into a life of debt bondage. Lives without freedom.
If this book implicates all of us, I suspect a lot of people are not going to like it. This book is not for them. The following is written with a heavy heart, for all those brave people who will take a stance of compassionate non-compliance, and in doing so—create respite for humanity. Either you know who you are, or you will by the end of this book. That is my wish.
May laughter interrupt sorrow, may honour stoke the fires,
May courage endure the ages and deliver us safely home.
