The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Slavery Alive And Well

In virtually every country around the world, including the United States, men, women and children are held in involuntary servitude, exploited for commercial sex, coerced into work in factories and sweatshops. In some, children are forcibly recruited as soldiers. These are forms of human trafficking.

They are, in fact, forms of modern-day slavery. Estimates of the number of victims vary widely. According to the U.S. intelligence community, approximately 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders each year. About 80 percent of them are female. Up to half are minors. These figures do not include millions who are trafficked for purposes of labor and sexual exploitation within national borders as well.

What this article fails to mention, however, is that while in most countries, including the United States, "involuntary servitude" is illegal and prosecuted, Islamic societies maintain the legalization of Muslims 'owning' slaves - even children, even for sexual purposes. A majority of instances of slavery in Western countries are a direct result of immigrants bringing their oppressive cultural & religious practices and exercising them against the norms and laws of civilized nations.
