Purpose of this page[edit]

I feel this article doesn't acknowledge the extent of contemporary slavery in the Arabian peninsula and nearby (Saudi Arabia, UAE, Oman, Yemen, Djibouti). These are historic centers of slavery and at least until the 1960s witnesses report slave auctions. There is no doubt that there is still widespread slavery there today. 144.131.209.126 (talk) 02:06, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

In response to the below criticism I have deleted much of this article and moved most of the rest. This page should now be used as a child article for Slavery, pertaining only to its contemporary aspects. K. the Surveyor (talk) 18:33, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Really? This sounds like this was written by an 8th grader. Delete. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.116.226.138 (talk) 02:55, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

this is a bleedin' awful article.

-- yes, copy and pasted, probarbly from US government documents. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Opmcclellan (talkcontribs) 21:34, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

ok, copy and pasting can be forgivin but not even adding a personal opinion and some self found facts is a bit dim, and also there should be links to the main website. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bookfinder612 (talkcontribs) 19:49, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

It reads like someones high school paper. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 208.251.185.100 (talk) 16:32, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

terrible, just terible —Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.97.243.208 (talk) 01:47, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

delete the entire thing; better to have no article at all than to have this garbage mucking up wikipedia —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.126.36.13 (talk) 20:21, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

I'm really sorry, OP but this article is incomplete and is mostly just socialist talking points. 24.227.222.9 (talk) 05:38, 11 February 2014 (UTC)gangreneday

This could certainly use some work but it is not "just socialist talking points." Bryan Caplan is no socialist! And even Republicans are coming around and discussing the issue, e.g. Noem in South Dakota. — Preceding unsigned comment added by AlexanderHamiltonRulz (talkcontribs) 01:52, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

"Socialist" presumably refers mainly to the Wage Labour section (a libertarian, of course, would argue that the alternative to wage labor would quickly drive off the boss, and require some other form of slavery, in an attempt to keep a much-diminished paycheck coming). Art LaPella (talk) 22:23, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

The section on Wage Labor attempts to redefine the term "slavery" from a non-neutral Marxist perspective to include free workers under capitalist systems. The sections within this article should all work from the common definition of slavery as given on the Wikipedia Slavery main article.
