How can American society ever right the wrongs of enslaving Africans and backing an economic system that allows for wage slavery? We have seen many cases where the government has compensated groups--Native Americans for instance--for what was stolen from them. Why aren't the stolen services of people's forced servitude viewed with the same worthiness for repayment? On this episode of The Axiom Amnesia Theory, Heit & Cheri talk about the idea of reparations. Topics discussed include "The Narrative of Sojourner Truth," slavery, reparations for slavery, wage slavery, speculation on the logistics of a reparations class action, whether reparations for African slaves and wage slaves will ever become a reality and more!
