For John, BLUF: Sadly, slavery still exists, because many cultures don't value individual freedom. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From Instapundit, by Law Professor Gail Heriot, 28 August 2918.
Here is the lede:
ON THIS DAY IN 1833: William IV, King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, signed the Slavery Abolition Act of 1833 into law. There was an exception for possessions of the East India Company (which was removed in 1843).It is a short but thought provoking post.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
