I couldn’t stop reading this story about the author’s family slave.
I found so much about the story to be mind boggling.
One thing that stood out was how mean his parents were to her. They were nice to everyone else, to their kids, their friends and other family members.
I think it’s a good example of how power corrupts. Many folks imagine they would be a benevolent king, but they don’t see the feedback mechanisms that keeps them from becoming monsters. They think they’re nice to others just because. This story might make them question that.
