The horrible story of child slaves

The Guardian reports that the UK government is about to investigate allegations that the child survivors of the Nepalese earthquake have been sold into the UK as domestic slaves.

The enslavement of fellow human beings is sick, the enslavement of children is absolutely disgusting. Taking advantage of the desperate situation of the victims of natural disasters is nothing but evil.

Unfortunately slavery is a deep rooted practice and though its illegal around the globe, there are currently more people hold as slaves then ever before in human history.  Therefore it would be an illusion to think that the evil of slavery won’t spread to space settlements. If history is any guide, then space colonization might even promote slavery.

Space settlements should take any measurement necessary to combat slavery and the slave trade. Slave traders should be treated the same way as murderers, rapists and terrorists.
