GRAVE THOUGHTS – IS COMPLAISANCE THE ORIGIN OF SLAVERY?

This pamphlet produced in 2004 is a review of modern-day slavery with the perspective that slavery has been extant in England and the UK since before the beginning of the second millennia. From Archbishop Wulfstan in 1095, through to William Wilberforce in 1807 until today in 2007, slavery has been a pernicious force within our society. It is contended in this pamphlet that the desire to please, complaisance, is a powerful force that is at risk of overriding the dignity of humanity.
