As a culture de-Christianizes, slavery naturally returns February 17, 2014

When the culture is a de-Christianizing capitalist one, like ours, it looks for natural opportunities to turn the weak and despised into slaves on the Low Hanging Fruit Theory. One very natural place to turn is to populations nobody likes or cares about, and which people with a tenuous hold on mercy, but a very firm grip on law and punishment, like to congratulate themselves for punishing with slavery under the fiction of “law and order”.

So we arrive at the creation of a Prison Industry that feeds on young victims and relies on monsters like this judge for supplies of fresh meat.

There’s a reason Ransoming the Captive is one of the works of mercy.
