Food belief

When the "coffee blending pin" story was circulated among the community, I was not surprised if something like that really happened. It is not strange that as soon as the news came out, it was quickly received by many people.

In Bristol, where I live, I just met a lawyer who deals with cases of many abducted Vietnamese teenagers coming to England. They were forced to live and work illegally in poor conditions at Vietnamese nail salons. The lawyer, calling my people "modern slaves".

But the hidden corner that I learned from other Vietnamese was even more amazing. Many Vietnamese fled to the UK to do nail jobs and earn money. When arrested by the police, they claimed to be minors and abducted and forced to come to England as slaves. Vietnamese people have small appearance, making British police believe them. When they claim to be enslaved, if they are not eligible to be sent back to Vietnam or no other European countries receive, they will be temporarily staying in the UK by many routes and then can be naturalized. And the owner of the nail salon will be fined £ 20,000 for each such employee and may be prosecuted, in prison. So there are nail salon owners, due to jealousy of other nail salon owners, who secretly went "to report" to the police that the other salon used illegal labor or "slaves" and minors' labor.

This story made me realize that Vietnamese people can harm each other with many levels: the owner exploits the worker, the worker accuses his master of abducting him and forces him to be a slave while they escape to England to look for work, the owners shop denounce each other. This is an tit for tat. No one is a good person.

That's the story in England. And in Vietnam, can a dirty food production establishment be closed down and prosecute the first person to prevent people from continuing to sell murderous toxins to their compatriots? Pesticide spraying, fruits impregnated with toxic chemicals, rotten meat sold to restaurants, contaminated cooking oils ... have taken place for decades, the scale of the cases discovered later than the previous crop.

I was shocked when I looked at another community, also in England. A friend of mine, Chinese, opened a new restaurant here. He has not rushed to register the restaurant on the network to advertise right away but plans to do it after the restaurant "runs" for a year, with many familiar customers. He said, if later on the Internet, the restaurant was said badly, many customers will defend. He is confident: "The environment here is easy to do business properly".

I feel uneasy. Faith there is exchanged back and forth and multiplied. The guest believes the owner is doing business properly, the owner believes the guest will protect him if he treats them nicely. They will also get rich, but in a different way.

As for my relatives and friends in Vietnam, I often tell my children that when they go to the street, they have to "watch out for being taken advantage of", do not let them lose, they must hurry and compete for their own interests.

How can we be more kind to each other when we are always nurturing that another passerby will harm us?

Food mixed with toxins, impurities, not nursing people that kill. It is very strange in many countries, but it is not strange in Vietnam. I have heard the story about an ice cubes near 10 departments, ministries and branches management, but ice is still not safe. People put chemicals into water to make rocks quickly, consume less electricity and sell more profit.

So, nearly a dozen ministries and departments, what do they do? They still check, even if it is just unexpected, to find out the formulated pho, Pho, borax, dirty ice ... But many times, representatives of these agencies are coal, they are not enough people, no enough tools and mechanisms.

I am not defending them, but do not rush to blame the people who eat and take care of food safety, because that task is not easy when the murder food exists thanks to the tolerance of each person. All other producers of dirty food, from vegetables to fish meat, have been able to do evil deeds over the years, for failing to do so is warned and warned by one of those close to them. , or advice.

The old saying "buyer loses to the seller". The buyer never knows everything about the item he pays for, and the seller is always sure about the value of the item. Price, in many cases, is far from valuable.

That value, is an important part of our beliefs and social capital. It is still being worn down instead of having to thicken according to normal rules. And few feel that it is their responsibility to foster or protect their faith.
