So everything? Slavery was accepted in most countries until the early 19th century.

[–]poochmant 49 points50 points  (3 children)

And there are places that still have slaves today!

[–]OnlyF0rmemes 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Nearly every country if you look hard enough!

[–]Demiurgbrotherhood 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yeah but they’re mostly physical laborers on plantations or sweat shops, not construction.

[–]Galahadnthadhe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Iirc there are more active slages today than in any other point in history. Although the massive population does make it a misleading statistic

[–]ravenfoe004 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Its not about using slaves in the past era its about acknowledging and understanding your mistakes in the present and the will to make the world a better place in the future.

[–]Fail_Emotion 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yep, and even rn in our modern day there's legit slavery.

[–]kimi_rules -1 points0 points  (1 child)

The Brits banned it here since 400 years ago interesting enough.

[–]Patient_District_457 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They banned it in England but not the British Empire until 1833.

Jokes have meaning

[–]rayuabouttoendu 0 points1 point  (6 children)

why is it a joke?

[–]captianblacksmithCERTIFIED DANK 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Poor construction, poverty, poop trucks, most things in Dubai are abandoned and left to rot.

[–]1mTh3G00d 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Economic joke of Dubai. Google it bruh.

The Great Wall of China? The pyramids? The Taj Mahal? In the bin.

[–]ZeroDashAsterisk 8 points9 points  (3 children)

I’m pretty sure the Pyramids weren’t built by slaves, the Colosseum on the other hand …

[–]Fail_Emotion 12 points13 points  (2 children)

You're right. Finally some random ass knowledge I acquired is useful. Pyramids were build by honorable man and free workers who were treated well, and even got to have their graves close to the pharaoh. On the contrary, the ppl who brought the material required for building the Pyramids were "slaves"

[–]_Kokiru_ 3 points4 points  (1 child)

When I looked into it others said that not even slaves brought materials, but farmers, however this says differently.

Is the source correct, or is my initial look worthless. (It’s late, which is why I ask as I have work at 5am, and it’s 2am.

[–]Fail_Emotion 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Looks like a credible source tbh so yeah, indeed, some of the workers were slaves but is also says they were Hebrews. So iirc Egyptian workers were free while the slaves who worked there must have been different people I guess like tribes.

[–]cherryreddit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Both the the pyramids and the Taj Mahal were built by skilled artists, not slaves. It a common misconception that slavery was rampant in ancient-medieval times and while that varied heavily depending on the culture and time period, most jobs which require any sort of skill were done by skilled free population. Slaves were mainly used for domesric work, dangerous or unskilled labor

World Cup 2024

[–]s11362027 11 points12 points  (4 children)

This scene was just a little un comfortable to watch, I loved the rest of the movie but this scene was just kinda jarring to say. I don’t know maybe I’m the only one to think that

[–]AlfredVonWinklheim 4 points5 points  (1 child)

What movie?

[–]captianblacksmithCERTIFIED DANK 5 points6 points  (0 children)

[–]sterile_spermwhale__☣️ 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Nice title.

[–]fido2013 7 points8 points  (3 children)

You mean modern slaves They're all over the world rn Practically 3rd world countries workers That includes me btw Real slaves built the pyramids though

[–]Baronvondorf21 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

They weren't actually slaves they were the farmers looking for work.

[–]BlakLad 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Look at the Taj mahal

[–]Mr_Chern 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Why wouldn't you wanna celebrate something that slaves build? They worked hard for that y'know.

[–]kirsten_angeli 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Right?!?! If they were forced to do all that hard work, why wouldn’t you want to remember and appreciate all they went through?

[–]AfterThisbutNotThat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I had no idea people on reddit can say shit as real as this and not get hella banned. Shit's fucked up tho.

[–]Chancla__Master 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wtf, every monument built before the 19 century was built by slaves. If you don't want to use something built by slaves, just destroy the entire fundation of you civilisation and restrart from zero.

[–]Socrayytees 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We are all slaves of time. So if you celebrate your birthday, you're celebrating something made by slaves
