So you need to ask, where did this private internal Moral laws
[not from your God] and similar with others that detested chattel slavery within you/them arise from?
So you're still fooling yourself that slavery is over?
You are very desperate to push the above point due to ignorance and the hindrance of your religiosity to think and rationalize for yourself.
Where in this forum have I ever claimed slavery [even chattel slavery] is over?
And now you think everybody has a "private internal moral law" against it? That would make it hard to understand why chattel slavery has been one of the oldest and most durable institutions in human history, but carry on....
What I have been claiming is ALL and every human has been "programmed" with a moral POTENTIAL which include the distaste for chattel slavery.
Note what is critical is the term "POTENTIAL."
The point is this POTENTIAL for morality [i.e. no slavery] is not fully realized in all human then and now, but rather its realization is spread over a continuum within the whole of humanity over time. Note the Normal Distribution applies in this case. This distribution against slavery has been shifting since 10,000 years ago to the present.
As such, at present, we may have 2% of humans who are highly morally attuned against slavery, while say 10% may be inclined to be slavers, 10% still agree with slavery while the majority are against slavery in general.
The progress to date is that all nations are present has laws where chattel slavery is illegal as compared to 100 years ago where there where no such laws.
This is a progress you cannot deny.
This is evidence the internal moral potential against slavery is slowly unfolding within humanity.
Note the evidence for the inherent moral potential within humanity;
- Morality is not just something that people learn, argues Yale psychologist Paul Bloom:
It [Morality] is something we are all born with.
At birth, babies are endowed with compassion, with empathy, with the beginnings of a sense of fairness.
It is from these beginnings, he argues in his new book Just Babies, that adults develop their sense of right and wrong, their desire to do good — and, at times, their capacity to do terrible things.

Even monkeys has some internal compass for morality, note,
Haven't you seen this experiment??
It is very evident that 95% of humans i.e. 7.6 billion out of 8.0 billion at present do not want to enslave others nor want to be enslaved by others, to kill, to rape, to murder.
But unfortunately the reality is, we still have about 5% i.e. 400 millions
who are on the extreme and have various degrees of inclinations for slavery, murder, rapes and other serious evil acts, despite despite existing deterrent laws against these evil acts.
As usual I anticipate you will ignore my above argument-with-evidence due to your desperate need for consonance and your religious dogma that keeping your your rational mind closed tight.
