comment Using today's moral compass in fantasy
Another thought: they weren't appalled by their use of slaves because people had the right to sell themselves into slavery. Many times people found themselves without food or land or heavily in debt, so they would sell themselves into slavery to a rich master as a better option to starvation. I honestly believe people should have the right to do this if they so choose, in fact they do it today, but they sell themselves to a government system to avoid starvation when they are not productive enough to survive.
