This is really the crux of the whole discussions. Do we have a right to overlay modern sensibilities on people who are simply products of their time. How will the future judge us lol. Not well I suspect.Curious mention to two slavers. They did what the men of their time did. They traded people for money. Today that shocks most of us, at the time not that much, it was considered natural under certain circumstances.
On the other hand it is important history to know and acknowledge, if for no other reasons than to be on guard if such (in our eyes) replant behavior begins to re-emerge.
