Interesting view of enslavement. Isn't community service voluntary enslavement agreed upon under duress? If a non-convicted person is offered a
"plea deal" whereby he agrees to work 300 hours for free, to keep from going to trial and possibly jail, isn't that duress creating the agreement?
Aren't most plea deals duress derived contracts, under the "do this or that might happen" offer? And isn't community service working for others
without pay to pay off a wholly arbitrary calculated debt?
While I am well familiar with how we justify this action: criminals have to pay back society - the society=company that gets profits from their labor
but not the entire society as a whole, and this is how we keep them from doing bad things again. I recognize how we back-engineered the reason, but in
the end isn't CC service involuntary servitude?
Where is it written a "Crime" and some form of custody means slave laboring as penance? After 2000 years of this, are we who can wind up in the
slammer still under the delusion that this does anything but benefit the few and anger the enslaved? What proof do we have that this system stops
