Laws and Decrees


All laws and decrees below are true but are likely to be incomplete or truncated so it is a good idea to look for answers from people or websites relevant to the subject.

I just want to give a little explanation so that you get a minimal idea.

About slavery

The human condition of people who work without pay and do not have rights

Slavery (from the medieval Latin sclavus (slavus) refers to the human condition of persons (slaves) who work for a master without remuneration and who do not have rights over their own person.
Slaves must obey all orders of the master from birth or capture (transition from freedom to slavery) to death or release (transition from slavery to freedom).
Historically, slavery by definition meant the denial of equality between people, and philosophically slaves were considered a separate and inferior species.
Slavery can also be defined as a "state of total political, social and economic dependence in which a country, a social category, an individual is held."
