Slavery isn’t dead. The Master of the Key said that in order to fulfill our desire of consumer goods, each of us has 5 slaves, and in some places, this is still literally true.

BBC news reports that a human rights group in the African country of Niger claims that there are up to 43,000 people living there as slaves, who are bought and sold for a few thousand dollars. A recent lawsuit by one of them against the government, for allowing this to go on, has brought this scandal to light. Many slaves are taken from their mothers by slave traders at around 2 years old, as soon as they are no longer breast feeding.
