This just shows how ignorant the average person is.... Egyptians didn't use that kind of slavery they used a form of bond service. A person could sell their services to a wealthy patron to get out of debt but they still had rights like money they earned on the side was their own and the right to go on strike if the holder of the bond violated the agreement and to have the courts decide the disagreement. It was illegal to beat a bond servant other by the order of a court for committing a crime and the pyramids were built by professional builders NOT slaves though unskilled positions were often filled by people who wanted to pay their taxes that way instead of paying cash. Large land owners often used their bond servants to pay taxes working on construction projects for the Pharaohs. Oh and FYI women had the right to handle their own money, write their own wills, own and run their own business, and even divorce their husband for being an abuser or a bum. All that ended when they were forcibly converted to Christ-Insanity....

This is just a silly meme. But anyway, thanks for sharing your knowledge. Good job I managed to pass the first sentence "This just shows how ignorant the average person is....", and continued to read the rest of your comment. Lol

That's how I feel...
It is a touchy subject - history.

Hey
Doesn't the bible refers to slaves like a normal occurrence?

Hi there. I think understanding the past in its own historical context is important.

@Jetty exactly. How those communities lived and their reality. It is easier to look and comment on it while we are on a different era and reality.

@Zoohome We can't apply modern-day perspectives/standards to how people lived thousands of years ago.

@Zoohome Jews had slaves but the Egyptians did NOT use slavery of the sort the the bible describes it...

Does not equate .

We only want to do that to the gringo monuments erected to former slave owners. Let's start with President Washington. On his death bed, he owned 317 slaves.

Give me all your $1 bills. I'm a little short on small bills to tip the dancing women.

@WonderWartHog99 that’s one hell of a big bed.
