Lots still think that slavery is what we need in the USA, but this is the 21st century. We shouldn't own other humans anymore than the government should own it's people. If we continued slavery, we might have become one of those countries that everyone in America is complaining about right now. Do you agree or disagree?

No matter what the economic benefits of slavery are, the immorality of owning another human violates the ethical code of our country. Yes, slavery would make us a ton of money, however we live in a country where everyone is free. Freedom is what this country is built upon, and it would be extremely hypocritical to own humans, which would decimate our international relations with other western and developed countries. This is an easy con win because there are not many places in the entire world today that are okay with slavery. There may be some tribal slavery in under developed regions such as Africa, however every established and recognized country today is against slavery, and has outlawed this practice in their country.

It's not an easy win for con. There are several great economic benefits of slavery, not to mention it can also be used as a tool to save children who would've had a worse life in third world countries or prisoners.
