>Islamic expansion, hindustan autism, various empires Europeans toppled such as the aztecs, Benin, etc that based their operations on exploitation or enslaving their kinsmen (not that eutopeansstopped the exploration)
Well, when the west decided to end slavery once and for all, things started to happen. One funny example is
>Also lefties caring more about the 200 year old slave trade than shot happening right now in places like Ethiopia
Not just that, but also in Libya. And in general, the trans-Saharan slave trade made the trans-Atlantic slave trade seem like a shitty sailing vacation in comparision. Crossing the desert is perilous in itself. But then the Ottomans had a demand for eunuchs. And castrating males was illegal *in* the Ottoman Empire. But not bring eunuchs into the empire. The profit of one eunuch was so high that it covered the loss of several failed attempts...
Then there's the farcical road to the abolishment of slavery in Brazil in 1888. Troops that was ordered to capture runaway slaves could either drag their feets or just outright refuse if they felt really cocky. And when it was formally abolished, public festivities ensued.
On the other hand, the abolishment of slavery in the Ottoman Empire had the opposite reaction. Officials that tried to enforce it could be assassinated. And it was only in 1964 that there was turkish legislation that explicitly prohibited slavery.
>You dont seem to understand what marxist definition of imperialism is.
Tailored to dab on western countries and then used by the soviets to give them absolution from everything done during their rule and deny the heritage from Czar Russia? Yes, that's occidentialism.
