Slavery is Alive and Well Today
Slavery is probably more rampant now than before the emancipation. Even if you get paid if it's not enough to keep you out of poverty it is slavery. People who work in sweat shops, migrant workers and people who make minimum wage or less are in effect slaves. Prisoners are slaves. Child soldiers and those who are kidnapped are slaves.
If they have their way the republicans, many democrats and most rich folks will make everyone else slaves. It's a dumb idea because the economy would turn them into poor people. They don't care about the future but only now. That's why they are causing the extinction of humanity.
Slavery yesterday and today
