Very interesting ideas as well. Our current Empress supports the institutions of slavery and has said so. Even in the Providence Marches slavery is legal. Yet, despite our backwater home slaves have rights as well from abuse and cruel treatment.
Slavery has also brought about a way in which god can come into the hearts of so many more people. It allows some to have better health care, food, shelter, and job stability than what they would of had if they never of come under such conditions.
Also I would argue in some sense a slave is the most free of all gods people. A working person after his daily job must return home and fret over home, family, food. Yet, slaves are the happiest, and, in some sense, the freest people in the world.
The Slave is free, too, when the labors of the day are over, and free in mind as well as body, for the master provides food, raiment, house, fuel, and everything else necessary to the physical well-being of himself and family. The children and the aged and infirm work not at all, and yet have all the comforts and necessaries of life provided for them. They enjoy liberty, because they are oppressed neither by care nor labor. The women do little hard work, and are protected from the despotism of their husbands by their masters. The balance of their time is spent in perfect abandon. Besides, they have their Sabbaths and holidays.
The free laborer must work or starve. He is more of a slave than the Minmatar because he works longer and harder for less allowance than the slave and has no holiday, because the cares of life with him begin when its labors end. He has no liberty, and not a single right.
Public opinion unites with self-interest, domestic affection and municipal law to protect the slave. The man who maltreats the weak and dependent, who abuses his authority over wife, children or slaves, is universally detested. The sin is not in slavery but the sin in which abuses are made is the real culprit.
Abolitionist, whether successful or not, is injurious to the slaves. It scatters discontent, and therefore unhappiness among them in their present state; it increases their insubordination, and thus subjects them to severer usage: should it free them from bondage, it would at the same time free their masters from the care of providing for them, and leave them an improvident class unprovided for, to suffer in rags and starvation, or under crime and its effects.
The sin as I have always said lies in the hearts of man. Not in any institution or government body. As any law or person can misuse their authority. I pray to god that respect and dignity be given to all people from that of the highest noble to the lowest slave. For we are all gods children.
I have only until recently come under contract of slaves. Prior to this only a few servants nothing more. In the creation of a new home I now have 3002 slaves and two servants. As a warden their care and health is my responsibility and I take this quite seriously. It is inherent to treat the slave well and with respect. For this gathers the most productivity.
