emotion_facepalm What about the slave revolt led by Spartacus? If their lives as slaves were so great, why would 70,000 risk their lives to escape slavery? FYI, they failed and 6000 of the survivors were crucified.
Slavery was not a bad thing in ancient times. Seriously. A slave was more like a member of the family you owned. It was almost nothing like the enslavement of African people in the U.S.A. s**t, the Israelites even had special rules about how to not mistreat slaves. This is why you don't see Paul and Jesus complaining about it.
Sparta was notorious for being batshit insane. They were not a normal people. They regularly beat the s**t out of their own children.
