We've come up with fancy new names to plaster over the word "slave" in these enlightened times (all hail the thesaurus), to give the illusion that
slavery is a thing of the past. It is suggested, nay, proclaimed, that we've managed to do away with it entirely in the western world. Have we?
And for that matter, what exactly is "slavery"?
According to "The Free Dictionary", slavery is :
slav·er·y (slv-r, slvr) n. pl. slav·er·ies
1. The state of one bound in servitude as the property of a slaveholder or household.
insight into the mind of the predominant religious "background" of the ruling classes of the planet, involved in world domination, is vitally
important to this topic. as a result, i went in search of material discussing old testament perspectives on slavery. i think is vitally important to
our understanding as US citizens or even world citizens, that we know the underpinnings of such concepts, their derivation and their evolution, as to
what our plight may be today in 2010 AD, if indeed there is reason for concern. I must warn you, the website is predominantly christian, but provides
some insight into how the view of slavery has changed over the years in some sectors of society, while remaining virtually identical to old testament
times, both in and out of hebrew society
Notice the article in the website above claims that hebrew slaves often were treated as members of the family, even when they were not the same race.
a slave owner without male heirs, could opt to and in some cases did, leave his entire fortune to a slave.
although enslavement of any kind is frowned upon today by many areas of society and many global communities, it is clear that the folks in charge of
the planet, have a very different view about it and have just learned to use the thesaurus with increasing levels of skill to hide the butt ugly truth
of it. what's that mean? i'll tell you:
YOU ARE A SLAVE.
you are not only an indebted slave (in fact, you were over 100k in debt, before you were even born! so much for personal responsibility!), but you and
your entire family are sold into slavery at the moment of conception, and most of it based entirely on a fiction. how do i know this? easy.
when you were born, a bond was created with your name on it that immediately proclaimed you as a shared debt holder. you had nothing to do with that
debt, you weren't even around to make decisions regarding that debt, and even if you had been, the chances are extremely high, someone in political
or financial power made that decision for you, without ever bothering to inform you of your rights in the situation or even the existence of the you
that is indebted.
the data is withheld under the pretext of "IGNORANCE OF THE LAW IS NO EXCUSE." let that sink in and then think back on the link i provided to the
website about slavery in the old testament.
the laws of the planet were originally created to teach us to be moral, honest, upright members of the societies in which we lived. this condition
of honesty was equally important for the leaders (and by proxy, the financial and/or religious powers) of the nations, especially as regards the
treatment of people under their control. But because power tends to corrupt, they have often fell off the wagon and lost sight of THEIR MORAL AND
PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY in the matters regarding the abuse of power.
Mind you, they have the power to make a difference in this situation, and simply refuse to. Instead, they have opted to misuse the law, shield their
actions under the cloak of IGNORANCE OF THE LAW IS NO EXCUSE, and dared anyone to do anything about it.
my question is, and probably will remain to be:
If i did not agree to be indebted before i was even born, why am i? under what pretext am i being held in slavery? why are there bonds written on my
life that i was not only unaware of, but powerless to effect from the time of conception?
i need justification for this, pronto, and so do you.
