abolition - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Abolition never happened, slavery was simply exported off-shore by means of exploitative monetary policy backed up by the military. These are policies living people voted for, that living people enacted, people of all ethnicities in the modern world. If we could take even a fraction of the momentum toward fairness and restorative justice the world has right now and put it toward the people of developing nations that are living as slaves right now, either paid slave wages or trafficked as if they were livestock, we'd have a real chance to create a better world. Will we work to let our slaves go free, to live lives of joy? Will we let go of our claims to their resources? Will we take the hard steps into a word that really has no slaves? It's time to take off the entitlement tinted glasses and see the world how it really is and our roles in it. I'm an abolitionist, how about you?
