    Sesquicentennial Comparisons: Black Slavery in America and Ottoman Turkey​



    January 1, 2013
    By Andrew G. Bostom



    **Snip**
    The aggressive campaigns of Western abolitionists stand in stark contrast. Due to these efforts-spearheaded, initially, by Evangelical Christians, such as William Wilberforce-slaves were freed within England via court order during 1772, in the British colonies starting in 1834, and colonial France in 1848; the United States abolished in slavery in 1865. Slavery did not become illegal within Islamdom, however, until large swathes of its territory came under European colonial rule (for example, Egypt in 1882; Morocco in 1912), or Muslim nations sought admission to the League of Nations after 1920 (p. 12). Thus slavery was not formally outlawed in Republican Turkey until 1933, when, within a year of joining the League of Nations, Turkey sanctioned its prohibition by ratifying the League of Nations Convention on the Suppression of Slavery (p. 217).

    The Anthropological Society of London presentation begins with the estimate of the black slave population in "Stambul" [Istanbul] "at 30,000 souls." An immediate distinction is drawn between these black slaves and the black slave population in the southern US:

    Spamming the forum with non-stop BS threads from ultra right wing propaganda sites does nothing but make yourself and those on the far right look like a bunch of idiotic parrots and sheep.

    I could just picture you guarding the Hareem after becoming a eunuch. A favorite practice of Muslims with their slaves.

    More food for thought, the US also banned the importation of slaves in 1808. By that time the U.S imported 300,000 slaves. Today the only people who advocate for slavery are liberals who all universally claim that we have no right to self ownership.

    Any law inconsistent with the right of self ownership is indeed partially a move toward slavery. You disagree? The Democratic platform is almost completely a rejection of the right of self ownership which makes slavery a viable option. Republicans have their own rejections as well but not to as large an extent.

    Libertarianism is a move towards barbarianism.

    Government is necessary. Get over it. It's not going away.

    Who said anything about libertarianism? The purpose of government is to protect the right of self ownership, without which, would be impossible. You disagree? Government has no other purpose but to protect property. The only thing left to the democratic process is how we go about it.
