Theroy

What was Thompson’s theory of the relationship between sanctions and slavery? 

The sanctions were cruel to the slaves they owned. Some owners were good, but most were corrupt with the power they had. Having someone do your every deed has its ups and downs. A good sanction would be treating the slave with respect and not punishing them for no reason, while a bad sanction would punish without reason and mercy. Those who claim to be, are not.
