Human Exceptionalism

Life and dignity with Wesley J. Smith.

Slavery is Also an Affront to Human Exceptionalism



Text  



Slavery is evil because it treats human beings as if they were mere objects to be used for work, sex, or other purposes of the slave "holder." In doing so, the slave holder shatters the intrinsic human worth of both the slave and the "master," since treating humans this way is, in fact, anti human. Thus slavery is also a relevant concern for Secondhand Smoke. Apparently human trafficking is getting out of hand in the Ukraine (along, apparently, with everything else).
