comment When and how did people begin to consider slavery immoral?
Good point. The Church prohibited slavery, yet serfs existed. Probably the reason they were not considered "slaves" is that their rights changed over time from land leasers to slaves, or vice versa. E.g., in Russia, there was St. Yuri's day, when a serf could leave his master for another one, but later it was abolished, and thus the serfs were deprived of their last right.

Yes, and holy books also say that slaves have certain rights.

comment What set Checkpoint Charlie apart from the other border checkpoints in Berlin during the Cold War?
The Stand-off between US and Soviet tanks was probably quite famous. But it wouldn't be significant for defectors.

comment What was the reason for inflation in Britain after the Black Death?
I hypothesize that they considered it obvious that all land should be cultivated, even if it didn't pay.
