Most Slavery Today Than Ever Before in History 02/02/2016

After the Civil War, slavery was ended in the United States, but recent research reveals that there is actually more slavery today than at any time in history.

Slavery is called by different names, such as human-trafficking, generational indebtedness, as in South Asia; forced labor in North Korean prison camps; exploited labor for mining and agriculture in South America and Africa; illicit drug production and trade; and sex-slavery in cities across the world, including the United States, of which Super Bowl weekend is unfortunately a big venue.

Slavery is part of Islamic sharia law, with long histories of slave markets, forced marriages and child brides. An estimated 180 million Africans and over a million Europeans were enslaved in the 1,400 years of Islamic expansion.
