Haha, that is brilliant, I didn't hear it before.

Putting gasoline on fire: Why would you need to free the slaves? The slavery empires were the most productive types of societies in history, compared to the production means, ways and tools available at the time. What the hack, they build pyramids and Chinese walls with ropes and pulleys, and we, in the technological society, can't even wipe our asses because we go to the toilet with the mobile phone to watch youtube during sh!tting and we have both hands busy scrolling and typing.

In fact, if I would be able to go back to time and create a pink future for me there, I would try to change as less as possible, to make sure the future won't change so much so I can still, in the future, be born, find the time machine, blah blah blah. It would be kind of nightmare-ish, I'll have to be even more careful than Andrew Harlan.
