All pyramids were built by slave societies so far as we know. There were some books written about some of this you may have read. Certainly all Christians, Muslims, and Jews will have read.
We know this also about south American 'civilizations' that built pyramids. So far as we know, they were much more brutal and bloodthirsty.
Freedom is beautiful.
Not big monument created by slaves like the pyramids or stolen wages like Mt Rushmore or Hoover dam. Those things aren't freedom. They aren't beauty.
They should be preserved.. as proof of what slavery does and steals from society.
But that is not civilization. That is social rot.
