Does Slavery still exists ?

We agree that slavery is a system in which people are held against their will and forced to work or perform services for their master for grossly inadequate or no monetary or material compensation.
Perhaps we have had slavery since we stepped out of our caves, and began to gather and store food and goods. Thereafter resource wars started, and one of the resources taken by conquerors was slaves. The number of slaves today remains as high as 12 million to 27 million, though this is probably the smallest proportion of the world's population in history. Most are debt slaves, largely in South Asia, who are under debt bondage incurred by lenders, sometimes for generations.

Human trafficking is a form of slavery which is primarily for prostituting women and children into sex industries. It is the fastest growing criminal industry and is predicted to eventually outgrow drug trafficking. How does an intelligent species allow human trafficking to take place? Why, as world citizens, do we not see it? Despite our intelligence, are we just so selfish that we don't want to care or know about it? I'm alright Jack; as long as there is no effect on me or my child, to hell with the rest of the world. I will go on my vacation and show off the photos on Facebook…

Child trafficking and Child Soldier is a form of slavery in our modern world; how shameful is that? How can we stop it? There are many organizations out there working on this issue, and perhaps by joining them or by educating ourselves and discussing this with others, we can help eliminate this disaster of our time.......Anti-Slavery

Woman trafficking is a form of slavery....The international trafficking of women and children is a growing phenomenon, as thousands of women and children are trafficked by businessmen into dens around the world. Surprisingly, many follow the same slave routes of the Middle Ages or the Renaissance in their journeys to buyers from Italy and France.

Pornography is a form of slavery. Pornography is just as addictive as any narcotic drug, as serial sex killer Ted Bundy notoriously admitted just before his execution. Numerous other sex offenders have bolstered Bundy's testimony, as has clinical scientific research.

 Child Labour is a form of slavery as well...In 2008 there were 215 million children working illegally in the eyes of international law, almost 14% of all the world’s children under 18. This includes 115 million children under that age engaged in "hazardous work" which could threaten their safety or health, such as handling chemicals, heavy loads or enduring long hours.
The remaining 100 million child labourers are those aged under 15 - the international minimum age for legal employment – whose tasks are not hazardous but are more substantial than “permitted light work.” Together we can make a difference, educate ourselves and find a way to eliminate one of the most shameful phenomena of today’s modern world. How about Migration; is there any hint of slavery there? Humans have migrated throughout the history, but was it all by choice, or force of war or politics? Looking for democracy, or brought in by force?
