    This human slavery is main obstruck this world to be free, without freedom, education and order of law for huminity, this world become hell. As I was child slavery, I know what is slavery and how difficult to compell to life with slavery. Now I am free and feeling what is freedom but thinking freedom is never free when every slaves feel they are free from any kind of bounded slavery.
