For this answer, I suggested via an edit that the following section should be removed due to being "Truth"y (and a false analogy):
Some oppose slavery because they are brainwashed to think slavery is bad, and evil, this belief couldn't be further from the truth.
Slavery is the most efficient replacement for the prison system.
In the prison system, the criminal or enemy combatant's expenses are paid by the victim and other innocent people, while the prisoner is not expected to do any work, this is the case in most Western societies.
In slavery, the criminal, or enemy combatant's expenses are paid by his/her owner, while the slave is expected to work for the owner.
The latter is more fair and just, while the former is insulting no matter how you look at it, yet we still have Muslim and none Muslim arguing against slavery, simply because slaves were treated horribly by some societies.
The answer also has a distinct flavor of being apologetics.
My edit was declined, and the only reject vote I could see before my edit suggestion disappeared declined the edit suggestion with the reason that the intent of the author should be preserved.
I'm confused by this. If the section I quoted I above is Truthy or apologetics, it should be removed according to the referenced meta-posts; the author's original intent should not be a reason to keep them, since that intent is exactly what we want to see less of.
Therefore my question:
- what qualifies as "Truth" or apologetics?
- is the quoted section Truthy, or apologetics?
- are Truthy and apologetics sections in answers supposed to stay and be voted down, or is editing/flagging those answers the preferred way to deal with them?
