Slavery was not better

David Wordinger (May 8) and Cliven Bundy are both misinformed about the actual living conditions under slavery.

Most slave owners held only one slave due to simple economics; slaves were expensive. Family members were routinely separated by owners while being given no say in the matter.

Would Bundy and Wordinger really think that was better family life?
