Could Africa Have Avoided Slavery?
It is absolute nescience for anyone to think that slavery could have been avoided.
Before the last 3,000 years, we realize that no society is where it was today 3000 years ago. In 1700 BC, Egypt had the largest number of slaves. Are Egyptians who kept slaves in those days Caucasians?
Perhaps a pep history will do anyway. Sociology teaches that societies are not static; as such they evolve. Thus evolution makes the hunters at a given time to become the hunted at another. That is exactly what we call dialectics.
Consequently, even if there was no colonization or expansionism into Africa, political reawakening would have still taken place because somehow either the people by try by error or by importation would have devised a means of governance. The dialectics of expansionism shows that the Egyptians ruled and went, the Assyrians took over form them, the Babylonians overcame the Babylonians, Medo Persia conquered the Babylonians, the Romans defeated the Babylonians, the Greeks overran the Romans, French, Russia, Americans and name the rest,. The American empire today will one day give way for another empire before Jesus comes back. Each time a group is ruling, they take others as slaves. It has always been part and parcel of history.
Furthermore, God has determined certain things and man has no control over. It was destined to happen for the world to take the shape it has today and no matter what we did it would still have happened.
Until then, slavery would have still occurred.
