Slavery was a vile time in our history but to compare it to the Holocaust as one radio show did takes it a bit too far. Here are several reasons I take such a strong stance.
- LIFE- A slave owner treated their slave with contempt but not to the point of trying to eliminate them from this earth. For they considered them an important an expensive piece of the property while the holocaust was all about eliminating a race.
- GOVERNMENT- The government might have permitted and even supported slavery but didn’t force it on all the people of any area vs the holocaust which was looking to insure the state destroyed entire groups of people.
- CRUELTY- This is a tough one because slavery was especially cruel and in many ways sadistic. Yet those in the holocaust were treated worse then the lowest animal could be treated. For they were to be eliminated of any honor before their evil attempt to erase them from this earth.
- ESCAPE- In most cases escape was futile for someone in the holocaust as those who would consider such support could easily be eliminated as well, while there was a whole underground campaign that helped many a slave escape.
