Everyone keeps telling me how educational the new International Slavery Museum is and I keep meaning to take a tour but I thought it would be interesting to see if anyone thinks slavery still exists and in what form.

International Slavery Museum

Have you ever went to Dubai? Chad? Of course there is slavery, but today, in the civilized world, there is less.
I bet you'd like to have some black girl to be your personal slave 24 \ 7, don't you.

Do you have a black girl slave connection? If so, have them hit me up at: StoicPersonEater@igta.com.

Well sorry for that black girl thing. Anyways, slavery still exists and is very common in the countries I mentioned before and in other countries.

There's probably slavery somewhere. Still exist many places in lesser forms.

Clockwise from Left:

Sexual Slavery in the Balkans, Common 'Great White South' Variety Slavery in most African Countries, more Sexual Slavery in the Middle East, Child Slavery in India and Pakistan, Wage Slaves in most of Asia, and then:

Haiti has child slavery, most of South America has it too. The only real places you don't find it is the US and Northern Europe.

the closest thing ive come to it is the hotel staff in the Dominican republic working long shifts on about 2 a day. its very satisfying giving them a decent tip and getting a personal waiter for two weeks.

Yes, because we Canadians keep slaves...

Slavery is fucked up. It pisses me off almost as much as religion. Coming from a partially black family, I have relatives that have experienced it.

On topic, I support slavery as long as it's not based on race. I have written many letters to my congressman suggesting we enslave the homeless.

I had planned years ago to capture homeless people and use them as slaves in US sweatshops. Keeps them off the streets. sleep.gif

i know what's wage slavery is. it's not that bad in where i stay but it's still is a form of slavery. u can't do anything except after being APPROVED. Come on! the wage is only enough to survive a month and u have to keep coming back. there are much worst stuffs in asia. What good is money when u r working 12 hours a day, 6 days a week and too tired to do anything on the off-day. i think it is a form of slavery really. isn't it?

Considering slaves used to work for food (they had no choice) and your wage just helps you scrape by until the next month I would say it's slavery yes.

But to leave the country, frankly, i dont have guts and $. it's so called a free country. and if you are interested, i am living in Singapore. just a tiny city state smaller than New York. only way to survive is to have a job at all times.

sure.but thinking that doesn't ease me a bit if you know what i mean.and starving to death isn't that far away either considering we don't have any farm/natural products and money is what we are eating with.if there is a global food crisis, we are the first to starve to death in Asia.

Slavery exists in almost every country. Sex slaves. Women are coming from eastern Europe as sex slaves.
There's industrial slavery too, in particular in China.
The list goes on and on.

I have a slave. Her name is D-O and she's from a land of gays.

Of course slavery still exists. Sweat shop labor making nike jordans and etc. Sex slaves are all over the world. then of course there are people who are slaves to drugs like crack, an then there people who are slaves to the government for example mayors, governers, pigs, child protective services,DEA CIA you get the point. is it me or is this world becoming more early wwII germany esque?

Unfortunately there will probably always be slavery in one form or another.

Slavery exists in ALL countries across the planet. I don't know why people keep saying "most countries" because there aren't any that don't have slaves. Also black people weren't exclusive in slave trade. White slaves were called "indentured servants" that was supposed to work a debt off of over a period of several years. However in most cases the debt got larger as time passed. Then there was debtor prisons and workhouses. I like what Dr. Who said;

QUOTE
Donna: A great big empire, built on slavery.
The Doctor: It's not so different from your time.
Donna: Oy! I haven't got slaves.
The Doctor: Who d'you think made your clothes?

It's true that slavery exists everywhere, but not like in the old days. At least slavery is not legal in most countries... and no economy is built on slavery to the same extent as the southern US states once was.

Alot of (white) people from Norway and other European countries was captured as slaves and brought to North Africa during the past centuries.

Please, Africa is still a slave dominated nation. The US South wasn't the worst. And I meant that it was silly to think that because someone else has to make a shirt, then that means their automatically enslaved. I hate those people who think that we haven't abolished slavery until we reach a star trek status.

If we're getting metaphorical you could say that the upper classes are slaves to money... but then practically everyone is, and those that aren't are considered outcasts from society. I think there are very few cultures left where a monetary system hasn't taken over and bartering is still the main form of exchange.

I dunno... I personally wouldn't say people are slaves to their money. If anything we're slaves to our money. Think about it, we NEED a house... we NEED a car... we NEED to start a family (although I personally don't agree that seems to be the mainstream thought...) and how do we get all these things? Money... and how do we get money, by working... working night and day, overtime, 10 hours a day, 5 days a week, weekends. So in a way, we're forced into working... once we get enough money we are free. At least, that's my Philosophy

We are free until the next bill falls through the letterbox. Or in the American equivalent is placed in the mailbox, dunno what you have in Canadarrgh, probably the latter.

Using bartering instead of money is probably making you more of a slave, not less. Not only are those cultures slave to material things, they are slaves in that they have to manually produce their own "currency". I personally prefer being slave to money...

In a sense we are slave to life. And that makes us slave to God lol (unless your'e atheist). Naw, more seriously most of us are our own slaves, driven by our own mind.

No... Bartering makes much more sense in my opinion, and besides, we are far more enslaved to our materials now than we were previously. Trading goods for goods makes more sense than trading a piece of paper for goods imo.

Yes you do have a point there. But don't forget that the real slavery kicks in when you have to produce your bartering goods. You can't just go to work and get paid by meat, potatoes and other vegetables and whatever. You have to be a farmer growing most things you'll need. that's slavery IMO.
