Modern Slavery

I see that our new Prime Minster Theresa May has launched a new initiative that aims to stamp out modern slavery; as per my previous post on this very subject, she too labels this practice as "evil". I really hope that some of the money is used in education and counter narrative development work aimed at the kinds of people who practice and (importantly) preach that slavery (particularly of Women) is OK because of some primitive and evil verses in some ancient mythology or other. The problem is one of indoctrination, particularly of children in so called "faith-schools" and of self appointed so called "scholars" These are people who prey on the weak minded and gullible who are susceptible to the more literalist ends of the delusion based economy. I would argue that to earn the label "scholar" you need to read more than one book!
