I like Fred. He comes down a little hard sometimes, but he has clear vision.

I thought it was a good piece. We are doing a very bad job of teaching history, leaving people without the knowledge to keep repeating mistakes or re-enforcing mistakes already made.

I guess I didn't catch on to what the point was.

Is there still slavery anywhere in the world?

I recall there just might be.

So, which is more important: to debate the historical accuracy of what no longer exists, or to bring to the fore something that could be revealed and vehemently condemned, assuming anyone really cared on where slavery currently exists?

There is still slavery in America, much less the world. Its just not codified.

A Wiki search, so accuracy may be suspect. Looks like this evil "industry" still thrives:

The United Nations estimates that roughly 27 to 30 million individuals are currently caught in the slave trade industry.[8] India has the most slaves of any country, at roughly 18.4 million.[9] China is second with 3.4 million slaves, followed by Pakistan (2.1 million), Bangladesh (1.5 million), and Uzbekistan (1.2 million). By percentages of the population living in slavery Uzbekistan tops with 4% of its population living under slavery followed by Cambodia (1.6%), India, (1.4%) and Qatar (1.4%).[7]

Mauritania was the last nation to officially abolish slavery, doing so in 2007; yet 4.3% of the population still remains enslaved.needs update[10] Despite being illegal in every nation, slavery is still present in several forms today.

Slavery also exists in advanced democratic nations, for example the UK where Home Office estimates suggested 10,000 to 13,000 victims in December 2015. This includes, forced work of various kinds, such as forced prostitution.[11] The UK has recently made an attempt to combat modern slavery via the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
