David Suzuki, from this video.

(via afro-dominicano)

Direct slavery is as much the pivot upon which our present-day industrialism turns as are machinery, credit, etc. Without slavery there would be no cotton, without cotton there would be no modern industry. It is slavery which has given value to the colonies, it is the colonies which have created world trade, and world trade is the necessary condition for large-scale machine industry…. Slavery is therefore an economic category of paramount importance.
Karl Marx | Letter from Marx to Pavel Vasilyevich Annenkov (1846)
