Interesting. Which country exactly is this?

Finland, but i did some research on the subject and i totally forgot about "maaorjuus" i think in english it's "serfdom".... but it's hard to say, because Finland wasn't even independent country when it ended.

Probably not true, there was slavery everywhere.

actually, i checked this. Finland was part of Sweden before 1808 and after it part of Russia. there has never been racial slavery, but serfdom is different. it is where some parents sold their children as slaves and the slave just does what the land owner wants and when the landowner decided to sell the property he/she also sold the slave with it. it's more like the property owns a slave more than the person who owns the property. i do not know if that was proper grammar. that ended in 1812 in Finland but continued in Russia, but Finland wasn't even an independent country when that happened. Finland became part of Russia in 1809. thank you.

Being the slave to property sounds even worse.

i think both are actually equally bad, but at least you didn't need to feel that other people are superior when compared to you, but it would actually feel pretty bad if your parents sold you to a property but there weren't as many slaves here as there were in many other countries. i take my first words back.
