I appreciate Ted Ryan's equanimity in arguing his case on the slavery issue. 
  But....when a person is forcibly separated from his or her family, never 
to see father, mother, sister, brother, daughter, son, husband or wife again 
and made against his or her will, however kindly and gently, to live with 
and work for a "master", regardless of how nice and understanding this 
master may be, all the "mutual intimacy and harmony" that the authors write 
of cannot negate the incredible cruelty of the slave trade.  How many 
thousands of people, over how many generations, were robbed of their lives, 
robbed of their families, and of their dignity?  Show me an example of a 
slave who suffered no physical intimidation or beatings, and you're still 
showing me a slave who has been denied his humanity, and there is no 
                                                       Carl Westberg Jr.
