  •  About the slave business plan. (1+ / 0-)

    Here is what teachers should have done.  Compare and contrast the millions killed in Stalin's Gulags with the millions killed in Christian supported, capitalist free market slave trade.  Slaves were tried as commodities within a classical no regulations, free market driven by supply and demand.

    In economics courses, we of course learned how communism was a failure and killed so many people.  You know, nations under free market capitalism also killed millions.  Maybe throw in how many Chinese died in the Opium Wars because Britian didn't like closed trade barriers (much loved by capitalists even now).

    But in a brutal way, that assignment showed the murderous depths of capitalism.
