Geez, PJ, I dunno.
You'd know more about that than me.
I do remember the assertion that some slaves were worse off when slavery ended.
Something similar may have happened in Australia when the decision was made to give Aboriginal people equal pay.
This led to their eviction from the properties on which they camped and their survival and demoralisation on welfare and too much drink.

Every Sunday night in Dalat they close off the streets leading to the main squares on the top and kids come out with their toys, scooters and things I don't know the names of, and the older boys gather in circles and kick something like a shuttlecock around with fancy moves, and other kids practice breakdancing. And nobody is drunk. It was very beautiful. This happens in our town at New Years Eve, but it is quite different, because it is a commercial event and everybody is legless. Here it felt like a statement that people are more important than things, even if that is so rarely true.
