"I support sweatshops because I believe that they are good for the poor, not because I believe that interfering with them violates the non-aggression principle, or a natural right to freedom of contract, or whatever. If you could convince me otherwise -- if you could convince me that the policies I advocate set back the autonomy and welfare of the poor rather than advance them -- then I would change my mind."
