My thoughts on human trafficking and 21 century slavery. When slavery was abolished in the US and in Europe, it was not human nature that was changed. Some hearts were changed, but some gave up slavery with a fight. A war, in fact. And the next generation was not born with no desire to oppress their neighbors. We were not born with love for each other. That comes from God - it's a gift of grace. But our hearts are still evil! We still desire to be in control. What better way to show power than to "own" a person. I think this is a reflection of the human heart at its worst.
