Slavery Is Endemic To The Human Psyche

In an interview on GRITtv with Laura Flanders, I discuss how slavery is endemic to the human psyche.

We like to think, in our enlightened 21st century world, that slavery could not possibly exist. Yet 145 years after the Emancipation Proclamation, the CIA estimates that 14,500 to 17,000 foreigners are “trafficked” annually into the United States, threatened with violence, and forced to work against their will. Most of us aren’t inclined to listen, Bowe says. But this is what globalization means.
