Default Re: More than 29 million people still live in slavery

In fact, in some countries people sold themselves or their loved ones into chattel slavery because it was a better way to get subsistence than being landless. But those options were usually very scarce since it wasn't nearly as convenient as having people de facto enslaved by being landless.

And people tell me you can't compare landowning with slavery.

The victims of de facto enslavement by landowning by far outnumber the victims of chattel slavery, and it's not even close.
