Lots of interesting comments - happy to see people have pointed out slavery is still happening and it's ancient Roman origins as well.
I do think it's nice that someone occasionally apologizes for slavery, that way we know there are people in the world, who still oppose this ongoing
I suppose there have been fair and good slave owners in ancient societies, and even perhaps in places where indentured service is the alternative to
starvation - but the fact of the matter is, owning a slave doesn't encourage kindness.
So apologies, are always in order - my two cents.
