Pedophrasty

Definition: Argument involving children to prop up a rationalization and make the opponent look like an asshole, as people are defenseless and suspend all skepticism in front of suffering children: nobody has the heart to question the authenticity or source of the reporting. Often done with the aid of pictures.

Can also describe the exploitation of babies by professional beggars who rent them from their parents and use them as potent appendage in their trade(remember that children tend to grow and need to be replaced).

When I saw the movie “Slum Dog Millionaire”, I recognized him as the crook who lured children into his camp and put them to work ripping people off through begging. The character forcibly put the eyes out of the children with the best voices to boost their revenues.

    This executive flourished while the basis of DB was pillaged over the next two decades. Of course he finally had to leave under a cloud, but has gone on to be vice chair at another American pirate ship. So much for effective regulation and regulatory skin in the game.
