Stories, Part II
Ever since The 1619 Project was published, Story 3 has become oddly popular on the Left. They apparently think (if that it the correct word) that slavery was something invented in 1619. On the contrary:
- Enslaving foreigners goes back at least to the Egyptian Empire.
- Kidnapping foreigners to enslave goes back at least to the Assyrian Empire.
- Western Europeans joined the party in the 15th century or earlier.
