Communism is an ideology that is mainly based on the works and writings of karl marx. It is an ideology that promotes the creation of stateless, and classless societies. It concentrates on the creation of a common ownership of the means of production.

“ "The Communists… are on the one hand, practically, the most advanced and resolute section of the working-class parties of every country, that section which pushes forward all others; on the other hand, theoretically, they have over the great mass of the proletariat the advantage of clearly understanding the lines of march, the conditions, and the ultimate general results of the proletarian movement.

The immediate aim of the Communists is the same as that of all other proletarian parties: formation of the proletariat into a class, overthrow of the bourgeois supremacy, conquest of political power by the proletariat." – Karl Marx, Communist Manifesto, 1848 ”

In the field of social sciences, the role of social scientists is very important. This is because these scientists are supposed to come up with facts concerning the different disciplines. As thus, they are supposed to give insight, concrete definitions as well as directions for the further progress of the disciplines.

Many scholars have claimed that slavery as a socio-economic system has existed in almost all human societies (Davies, 1999). There are many definitions that have been put forward to explain what slavery is.

According to the 1926 slavery convention, slavery is described as “the condition and or status of a person over whom all, some, or any of the powers involved to the right of ownership are exercised”. According to this convention’s definition slaves are not allowed to leave their owners or territories of the employer without permission.
