I think that the distinction between possibility thinking and wishful thinking can be a fine line. This becomes more true when the thinking is not backed by any implementable plan or action. With no structures in place to carry out our plans, even great possibilities become wishful thinking. Of course, the reverse might ring true for many people.
The History of Slavery. The first class of involuntary slaves among the ancients, from war. The second class from piracy.
The causes of such treatment among the ancients in general. The decline of this commerce and slavery in Europe. Their revival in Africa. The African Commerce or Slave-Trade.
The history of mankind from their first situation to a state of government. An account of the first governments. Liberty a natural right. Mankind cannot be considered as Edition: Division of the commerce into two parts, as it relates to those who sell, and those who purchase the human species into slavery.
Their right with respect to convicts. Their right with respect to prisoners of war. Additional remarks on the two orders that were first mentioned. The right of the purchasers examined.
The Slavery of the Africans in the European Colonies. Imaginary scene in Africa. Their treatment on board. The condition of their posterity in the colonies. The seasoning in the colonies.

Last month, Isaac Fitzgerald, the newly hired editor of BuzzFeed's newly created books section, made a remarkable but not entirely surprising announcement: He was not interested in publishing. Nothing is impossible in this world. This implies that you can do anything, if you have will to do it.
The WILL is like "the hammer that shatters glass but forges steel". A determination which is as strong as STEEI makes everything possible in the world.
