On Slavery

Like most Americans who try to keep up with current events, I'm reminded two or three times a week about slavery in dozens of countries, including the United States. Usually, the enslavement is integral to theft of freedom by tyrants who kidnap and imprison youthful victims for sex trade.

What? Where's the Progressive Army that brags about putting my humanitarian money where their mouths are? Where's the posse? Why are the police waiting to engage? Where is the FBI? With the explosive emphasis on America's history of slavery, where's the outrage? Where are Redford and Moore?

Where's NATO? Where's the UN? Where's the world media?

The second annual edition of the Walk Free Foundation's Global Slavery Index has found that globally, almost 36 million people are subject to modern slavery.

While incidences of slavery were found in every one of the 167 countries surveyed, five countries -- India, China, Pakistan, Uzbekistan and Russia -- accounted for nearly 22 million people (61%) suffering in bondage. The worst offender, India, accounted for an estimated 14.29 million people.

Human slavery, the report states, is defined as "human trafficking, forced labor, debt bondage, forced or servile marriage, or commercial sexual exploitation."

The world media is busy covering the Pope and his agenda. It's the uneducated chastising the unwashed.
