I was once very upset about the issue of modern slavery.
While I'm sure it does exist, I would be very careful to label all prostitutes, strippers or porn actors as "slaves".
Most of these people are paid.
Human trafficking also rarely fits the exact definition of slavery.
In fact, most of these people pay to reach their target country illegally.
There are human rights abuses, but "slavery" is sometimes an emotional, yet incorrect term against bad working conditions.
What is noticeable is that countries with small families and liberal policies are being overrun by citizens of countries that had Marxist and
religious extremist beliefs, and for every liberated slave sent back home to try his best to be trafficked again, there are hundreds more waiting in
I saw a recent documentary on Nigerian prostitutes in Italy, and although they are bound by superstition and fear to the smugglers, most are sending
money home, and they are not slaves.
Yet the term is often misapplied.
What one does see is the return of the "cult", as mainstream Christianity splits into various sects.
I've seen people begging and spreading literature for religion, and to me they looked like slaves.
