comment Did anyone in ancient times want to abolish slavery?
@Ne Mo Spartacus was a convicted criminal. He initially served as a soldier but then has been punished and sentenced to be a gladiator. Note that legally in Rome only criminals and rebels could be sold to become gladiators, household slaves could not (unless they comitted a crime). Regarding being slave until one dies, a rule for household slaves was that they would be freed upon reaching old age.

comment Does anyone have a concrete example of the British Empire using revolution to gain control over foreign resources, governments?
It is very difficult to say exactly for the British because in recent history they acted in accordance with the US. Consider Afghanistan, Chile, post-WWII Greece.
