Duty must be primary, prominent, most conspicuous, among the objects of human thought and pursuit.... More > If we cast it down from its supremacy, if we inquire first for our interests and then for our duties, we shall certainly err. We can never see the Right clearly and fully, but by making it our first concern. No judgment can be just or wise, but that which is built on the conviction of the paramount worth and importance of Duty. This is the fundamental truth, the supreme law of reason; and the mind, which does not start from this in its inquiries into human affairs, is doomed to great, perhaps fatal error.< Less

More > written about the institution. He uses the accounts of geographer, Conrad Malte Brun, (1775-1826) to show that at the height of the slave trade 60 million Africans were slaves in Africa! Sharing with the reader the depravity of the African Kings who were the real "slave catchers," Roper theorizes that for those surviving the Atlantic crossing, life actually improved if they landed in the American South.
