Granted, slave labor was a pretty standard practice in the ancient world, but somehow Moses, if he existed, strikes me as among the most vociferous of its adherents. I talked about the fate of the Midianites at the hands of Moses, Phinehas, and Eleazar in great detail back on episode 10 of The Vocate, so I refer you to that if you want to really get up into your elbows in some heinous stuff.
Just like Moses isn’t the only slave-monger of the ancient world, Stalin isn’t unique among the moderns in his use of, shall we say, Creative Definition. But he has the snazziest moustache, so there you have it!
