Here is what is missing in your thought process. Most people want to be slaves. They do not want freedom and especially do not want the personal responsibility that freedom requires as a per-requisite. They want to be cared for, to be told what to do. The only difference between them and a free range chicken is that the chicken is consumed directly instead of being consumed soul/spirit first.
