has not been Abolished
This was the first idea that I thought of when I read the title for this book review.
One of the things that I
know that my teachers lied to me about is the content and intent of the 13th amendment to the US Constitution
The 13th Amendment
, adopted in 1865
, reads as follows:
"Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction."
Upon reading this, it is clear to me that slavery has *not* been abolished, but merely restricted to governmental usage.
At the same time that the United States was lambasting China for using slave-labor in their manufacturing, the United States was doing the very same thing.
The moral of this story is:
Get caught smoking marijuana and you go work for your "Uncle". "Uncle Sam" that is.
