Might be an Eye Opener. I think the Greeks invented slavery :lol: like everything else.


Slavery is a very ancient institution. Mention is made of it in the Code of Hummurabi, considered to be the oldest surviving codified statute which was introduced by the epomynous Mesopotamian king who ruled from 1792-1750 BC. For example:

17. If any one find runaway male or female slaves in the open country and bring them to their masters, the master of the slaves shall pay him two shekels of silver.


I know Tim. Just wanted a link to the Greeks who preceeded Turks by thousands of years and 'invented' democracy.

Nice to know that you are quitely observing from around the corner Tim. :lol:

No they didn't invent it, but they did abandon it as a bad idea thousands of years ago.

So, what made the Turks think it was a good idea to resurrect it? .... after everyone else, also, decided it was a bad idea!


Read what Plato said about slavery. If it was good for the Greeks its damn well good for the others. :wink:


I was only responding to Yialoussa response. 'Seek and ye shall find'.


Yes, Plato ... some 2,300 years ago.

How does your name-dropping, justify those who practice slavery to this day?

Plato, owner of five slaves at the time of his death, describes the very rich as owning 50 slaves

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavery_in_ancient_Greece

The greatest thinkers of antiquity, Aristotle and Plato, defended slavery with the “Human Nature” argument. They said: “It is human nature which makes the Greeks – a civilised people –enslave the conquered barbarians and all other peoples. It is on account of human nature that there exists inequality among men and the oppression of some by others.”

Was Plato an idiot? Or are you name calling as well. :lol:

No, not when it "suits" me, but when it is justified, I would quote the ancient Greeks, or any other authority.

So Deniz, how does your quote justify what is practiced by Turks, so recently?

... or did you just make an error in simply attempting justification?

Soon, I will answer your questions and more, because my next phase involves human rights abuses in Greece with a special emphasis on minorities. :lol:

Start praying to the 12 gods of Olympus from now because you're gonna need all the help you can get... 8)

I do not justify it at all. I was pointing out to Yialoussa that it has been going on for eons.

Do you know the circumstances of these girls being 'sold'? or was it merely the 'dowry' system which makes it look like 'slave trade'. It needs to be researched. At least we know that modern (ok 16th Century- 19th Century) was meant to be a profitable venture en masse. 'The TCs girls' perhaps you could count them with the digits of one hand. How widespread was it? any ideas?
