I've worked in the FDNY for the past 29 years. I've written freelance commentary for the past twenty years and have one book published "Looking Up (A Working View)," Quiet Storm Publishers. For those of you with whom my ideas resonate, we probably share a common love of Liberty. If you like anything you read here, feel free to reuse...just please add my appellation. Life's been more than fair to me and this is a part of my humble offering back. If you have any corrections, or additions, please email me (my email address is in my profile) and I’ll both appreciate and consider them all and do my best to get back to you with my thoughts on it. My ideas are always evolving and I’m open to persuasion in all areas. I thank all those who've taken some of their time to read here.
We often act as though chattel slavery was historical event, when in FACT, Western Europe and the United States were not only among the first nations on earth to eradicate chattel slavery within their borders, but among the ONLY nations ever to do so...even up through TODAY!
Chattel slavery STILL exists throughout the Muslim Mideast, across sub-Saharan Africa and in large tracts of Asia.
Sadly, it is far from dead and consigned to history.
