Any realistic discussion of values should take into account the four meal rule. There is no civilization that is more than a few meals away from anarchy.

Unfortunately, our greatest tragedy throughout the centuries has been man's inhumanity to man!
In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!

Even supposing there are some cases in which new inventions made slavery less attractive, I would guess that this functioned as an enabling factor, making it easier for the ethical arguments to take root. Nothing that I know about historical abolition movements suggests that increasing the efficiency of production was their primary motive. Uncle Tom's Cabin didn't present me with a bunch of economic appeals.

I was wondering if anyone was going to catch that issue where automation made a slave more efficient and therefore increased the demand for slaves in the U.S. But you also caught my main reason for nations to entertain the plausibility of ending slavery. Almost every empire of the past's economic foundation was based on slavery, particularly Rome. So it doesn't make sense that all of a sudden humans become so empathic towards slaves until the industrial revolution.
