In the old days, plantation owners took the attitude that the cheapness
of labor was the primary goal, so they bought imported slaves or 
took slaves during times of war. They did that irregardless of the social
consequences because all they cared about was short-term profit and
they did not feel they had any responsibility to the society they were
operating in. These big corporations today are taking the exact same
attitude. It was unethical back then, it is unethical now.
