Slavery's Global Comeback

J.J. Gould has a sobering -- and detailed -- story in The Atlantic about the "comeback" of slavery worldwide.  The bottom line is that, more than 150 years after the Emancipation Proclamation, "There are now twice as many people enslaved in the world as there were in the 350 years of the transatlantic slave trade."  Human trafficking is thus bigger than ever.
