In his L'histoire comme champ de bataille Enzo Traverso points out that memory as a socially relevant phenomenon appeared widely after 1989. The fall of the Soviet empire and the ensuing defragmentation of the world led to a situation in which a multitude of recollections, hitherto retained only in private, could enter the public space. Social memory became an element of identity and simultaneously an instrument of politics, increasingly encroaching upon the domain of legal discourse.

Equality is one of the most basic principles of liberalism and of democracy. The principle of equality requires the state to treat all citizens equally and especially to abstain from discriminatory treatment of citizens on grounds of race, gender, or religion. In addition, democratic countries forbid by law discrimination in various areas such as in employment or in education or in entry into public accommodations, whether such discrimination is carried out by individuals, by private organizations or by state agencies.

Approaching the 150th anniversary of the Thirteenth Amendment, we find ourselves in a period of heightened concern about issues of economic inequality. If any provision of the United States Constitution speaks to those issues, it is the Thirteenth Amendment. The Amendment’s proponents maintained that it established “freedom” and a “free labor system,” a view eventually accepted by the U.S. Supreme Court.
