The Financial Times revealed that two existing, leading British firms -- Freshfields and Rothschilds -- profited from slavery back in the 1800s. Although it's interesting historically, I don't think it should have any present day relevance. There ought to be even a moral statute of limitations for evil things for which there is little or no remedy today. I would even put the Holocaust in this category, along with Armenian genocide, slavery, probably Stalin's purges. Cambodian, Rwandan, and Bosnian atrocities are recent enough t9 continue to be prosecuted. If Freshfields and Rothschilds have been recently advertising their good records on slavery, then 5hey should stop it.
