Slavery did one good thing.
It introduced into the language the concept of becoming a "slave" to something.
We all now understand that slavery is bad.
So, we're now conscious of how bad it is to "be a slave to our own desires", to "be a slave to our lusts", to "be a slave to smoking",
We have become more conscious than we were before slavery existed.
The price of consciousness is suffering. We suffered to arrive at the understanding we now have. We can now fight against all types of slavery.
Hence we can conclude that God introduced slavery in order to raise the consciousness of men.
Now that we're aware, we no longer need slavery. We can focus on getting rid of all the other masters that have enslaved us, like "lusts",
"desires", "anger", "hate", etc...all these masters control us, and make us do things, against our will.
