Acknowledging slavery and dealing with the subject does not equate to condoning or endorsing it. The closest you’ll come would be the admonishment to a slave not to rebel, to obey his master. Humans have been bound in one form or another for all recorded history. Our era is the exception, not the rule.
The British Anti-Slavery Society, which is still around, claims there are in absolute terms more persons held in some form of chattelage today than at any time in its existence. This counts millions of individuals mostly in Asia ,’bound’ to their employers for various terms of service. Throughout the Arab Muslim countries slavery of various sorts openly exists and is simply not talked about.
