|Slavery in the Empire of Reason|
Historically slavery was a means to get cheap affordable food and goods. The medieval peasant was tied to the land and his lord under the feudal system, kept in line by the church. He was all but a slave in name. Most ancient societies had some form of slavery. The Roman slave system was considered one of the best because a slave could eventually earn or purchase their freedom, even becoming a full citizen. According to NBC Reba McEntire's first American ancestor was sold into slavery by a family wanting a better life for him.
The Empire of Reason considers itself enlightened and has freed all slaves.
