I believe that slavery should not exist. I believe this for many reasons.

1. Slavery is mistreatment of other human beings.
2. Slavery has no purpose at all.
3. Slavery is not worth the money.
4. Slavery is useless.
5. Slavery shows that you are a bad person.
6. Slavery is mean.
7. Slavery stops other people from living a life.
8. Slavery is wrong.
9. Slavery is spoke against in the Bible.
10. Slavery is racist.
11. Slavery was the cause of the civil war, which killed over 620,000 people.
12. Slavery is unconstitutional.
13. Slavery is just bad.

I accept this debate and will be arguing that slavery should exist (con).

I would like to start by taking each of your points 1 by one. As it is almost impossible to argue against some of them I will be skipping those.

2. Slavery has a purpose that being to make those who have money more money.
3. There are a variety of charts that say that the profits of slavery in places like Asia are reaching upwards of $50 billion[1]
4. See point 2
5. Some slave owners may not be "bad" in 12 years a slave a film that pokes at the brutality of slavery Solomon praises his first owner William ford.
9. In the bible there are a variety of verses that talk about slavery with mostly a mixed outlook at it. It does not say that you can not own a slave.
10. Slavery came before racism as racism was used as a means to justify the trade from Africa by Europeans.

Now for my argument of why it should exist.
Slavery is a strong economical concept no matter the moral wrongness of it.
I refer to the chart on the page below to show the profit margins around the world in places that have slavery.
In Asia and Europe they make a profit of 50 billion and 45 billion respectively.

What are you talking about i said specifically that i was arguing for something i was against(Slavery). I don't enjoy the idea of slavery in the slightest i figured however that it would be fun to debate a controversial topic

Since your so much for slavery, would you like to be one then? Tell me how that one goes for you.

I figure i would get a bit of a challenge from arguing against something i am so very against.
