The history of humankind, regrettably, is a history of slavery, practiced in every corner of the globe. The Roman Empire's business model was built on conquest and enslavement. Conquered peoples were subjugated and paid taxes to Rome, or individuals were taken captive and put to work in the capital city, not only as domestic servants … Continue reading COVID Slave Nations
The Edge of Revolt
You say you want a revolution? Sure seems like our clueless leaders are cooking up one heck of a revolt.

The morning coffee hadn't even cooled enough to sip when I learned that a woman in Wales was denied - banned! - from buying feminine hygiene products … Continue reading No Pads, No Peace!
