Description

Slavery is the most disfigured phenomenon of mankind. And the world has a sad history of slavery, of which it is ashamed today. Lincoln stands out in the US as the president, who by law abolished slavery and for that and has occupied a deserved place not only in US history, but throughout human history. Human freedom is inviolable; thus it is thematized in the legislation of countries with a democratic regulation and it is glorified as the most supreme, most valuable and inalienable entity of humanity. Many world authors today debate the enslavement of man through state institutions, especially the world-famous German philosopher Juergen Habermas in his book Auch eine Geschichte der Philosophie (Another History of Humanity), elevates the role of state institutions to the pedestal. which are maintained by public money, in undoing the enslavement of men. Our countries, with a democratic political order on paper, but in excessive autocratic practice, do the opposite of what is today widely proclaimed as a democratic value, enslaving man precisely through state institutions. Because the largest employer in our society is the state, employment is not used to abolish slavery, but to enslave man, who turns into a means to achieve political goals. The media, meanwhile, become dull, indifferent, and disregardful, in addition to serving as a preventive measure against enslaving people.

Modern slavery of people through state institutions in our living space and the role of the media in (not) disclosing this phenomenon

Lipjan, Kosovo

Slavery is the most disfigured phenomenon of mankind. And the world has a sad history of slavery, of which it is ashamed today. Lincoln stands out in the US as the president, who by law abolished slavery and for that and has occupied a deserved place not only in US history, but throughout human history. Human freedom is inviolable; thus it is thematized in the legislation of countries with a democratic regulation and it is glorified as the most supreme, most valuable and inalienable entity of humanity. Many world authors today debate the enslavement of man through state institutions, especially the world-famous German philosopher Juergen Habermas in his book Auch eine Geschichte der Philosophie (Another History of Humanity), elevates the role of state institutions to the pedestal. which are maintained by public money, in undoing the enslavement of men. Our countries, with a democratic political order on paper, but in excessive autocratic practice, do the opposite of what is today widely proclaimed as a democratic value, enslaving man precisely through state institutions. Because the largest employer in our society is the state, employment is not used to abolish slavery, but to enslave man, who turns into a means to achieve political goals. The media, meanwhile, become dull, indifferent, and disregardful, in addition to serving as a preventive measure against enslaving people.
