The US Slave Blog generally focuses on the hideous institution of state sponsored slavery in the Americas. Slavery was institutionalized to enrich the plutocrats in most of the Western European nations--England (Great Britain, United Kingdom), France, Spain, Portugal, Netherlands (Holland, Dutch), Canada (which could be British or French) and the USA (which could also be British, French, Spanish, or Dutch)--by expropriating the people, land and natural resources of indigenous populations in North America, Central America, South America, Africa, Australia, and every island in between from the Caribbean to the South Pacific and the Indian Ocean. Contrary to Adam Smith's notion of "specializing and trading" to produce the wealth of nations, the Crowns of Europe impoverished native populations and enslaved brown bodies for their vast wealth.
The US Slave blog is not neutral on the topic of slavery. Slavery is wrong. There is absolutely no justification for buying, selling, trading, speculating, or breeding human beings for perpetual enslavement. Every human being is born from the womb of a woman. Every human being has the right to exist without bondage.
What a cruel irony for a nation to proclaim "freedom" and "the rights of man," while enslaving whole continents of humanity and enacting genocide on native people. In the land of the free and the home of the slave. Or, Britannia rules the waves. Britons never, never, never shall be slaves.
