A slave is defined as a person who is compelled to do forced labor for another person or for an organization where he does not have the option to refuse nor can he expect suitable remuneration in any form except possibly food and water; often slaves were mal treated and tortured.

Slavery in ancient as well as medieval times existed as an after effect of war when the prisoners of war were sold into slavery and forced to work in fields, building and construction activities or as private slaves.

The practice of slavery may have started as a means of procuring labor at cheap costs especially where the work was hard and also where a group of people found itself in a position to dominate other groups with the help of means like money, force including army and superior technology including better weaponry and other related tactics.

Slavery has been banned officially in all countries; today slavery is considered as a crime against humanity though it still exists unofficially especially in countries where there is an influx of immigrants from other countries.

While some people may relate racism and a misunderstanding of how Humanity works as a global organism to the causes of slavery in the west, the main cause is money. How much better does it get then having free labor for life? In fact, the United States it self would not have been possible without slavery in some form. Without the free labor supplied by the slave trade (as well as the monies stemming from the trade it self), the scale of growth seen in early America would not have been possible. A lot of the infrastructure of the US was literally built on the backs of slaves, and without them there would not have been enough labor or money to have accomplished the same goals in anywhere near the same amount of time.
