Do you, as an American, consider yourself a slave? Ironic, isn't it, to live in the land of the free as a slave - even more so considering this free land was stolen from natives and built on the backs of African slaves. Regardless of the past, most Americans would answer my question with a resounding "NO". But why? What is required to be a slave? A whip to your back? Shackles to your feet? A master or lack of education? An upper class? Let's look at the definition of slavery:

Slavery - Wiki

Slavery is a system under which people are treated as property to be bought and sold, and are forced to work.[1] Slaves can be held against their will from the time of their capture, purchase or birth, and deprived of the right to leave, to refuse to work, or to demand compensation.

So how are we slaves? We are not property to be bought or sold. We aren't forced to work. As Americans, we cannot be held against our will and we certainly aren't captured or born into slavery... or are we?

What if I told you that everything that definition says is true? You'd look at me like I had 3 heads. But it is. Are you not hired or fired? Can your employer shut off your income without notice? Does he or she have the right to transfer you to another location? Are we not born into the class that our parents are in with the majority of Americans being either poor or lower middle class? And what happens if we simply refuse to work? You would eventually become homeless which, in most cities, is now a crime in itself. You could even be thrown off your own land if you don't have the money to pay taxes on it (seems more like rent than own to me).

The point I'm trying to make here is that we are literally forced to work. And if you cannot work, you end up on the street and you are literally thrown in shackles. But people have been working forever! How can I say that working is a form of slavery? Well...

There used to be a time in America that an immigrant with no education nor the ability to even speak English could walk off a boat and start his own business the next day (if he had the intelligence to do so). If you wanted to sell hot dogs you simply sold hot dogs. And if you made enough money doing that you could buy a taxi cab and start your own cab company. Maybe you loved to fish and chose to spend your day selling what you caught. Today, in America, kids can't even open a lemonade or cookie stand without the police coming to shut it down. And selling raw milk? Don't be surprised if the FDA raids your farm.

Ironically, the very reason why we have such high unemployed in this country, is the very same reason that forced that employment down our throats to begin with. Big Government, red tape, useless laws that do nothing but force those with great ideas to literally sell their soul and every worldly possession with it to make their dream a reality... or, you could simply work for an already established company that will threat you like crap for 40 years until you "retire" at 80, unable to walk and most times, without a dime to your name... that is, if your master doesn't fire you first. Which do most people choose?

Only in America can it be considered "normal" to put yourself into hundreds of thousands of dollars of debt at 18 years of age simply to continue an education that, for the most part, wasn't even needed in most fields 50 years ago. And once you "graduate" you're still not able to find employment unless it's at Walmart or some other minimum wage job. This article states 53% of Recent College Grads Are Jobless or Underemployed. With those numbers, it's almost just as sane to take that hundred thousand dollars, walk into a casino, and put it all on black. Let it ride!

The system, or matrix if you will, created to continue the long tradition of slavery is incredibly complex. But nonetheless, it is a scam. There is a reason why you need permits to sell a fish (an official document giving someone authorization to do something that would otherwise be illegal... like sell a hot dog or lemonade), crippling insurance to drive your own cab, and endless red tape and laws to do, well, anything. Because if there wasn't, you wouldn't need a job. You could, like the generations before you, work for yourself and build the life you dream of... without master telling you when and how to pick his cotton.

Are you a wage or a debt slave? Do you enjoy trading your life and very soul for scraps? We already brainwashed this generation that it's acceptable to become a debt slave at 18 and now we're teaching the next generation that they're lucky to even have a job. Sound like America to you? Sound like FREEDOM? Was it Government laws and regulation that made America what we are or was it the liberty of a free people to have their own mind and create their own reality? Remember folks, don't go out and make some lemonade to sell. It's illegal in America.

Seizure of the political machine and the judiciary that gives them cover. Then ..... mass trials. You can't fix a body that has turned 100% to cancer.

After scrapping the cancerous players, rebuild a new republic.

I say stand up to authority....uh no theyll put you in jail. Ok lets have an uprising and demand Govt. to be dismantled and re-organized... Dang theyll shoot you dead in your tracks... Lets all leave and go somewhere else....they wont let you.

Whats the answer? Everyone is sick of it,and we dont have any sort of momentum to go with,we are all afraid.
How could you reform it all. I mean look at the melting pot of crying and whining small groups,religions,ethnicities, that have come here over the past 100 years and got there way with what they considered fair. Why didnt we simply tell all these groups from the get go, hey you came here for the freedom you didnt have, not the freedom in your pipe dream,so if you dont like it ,get out. Maybe we should revert back to the original constitution,and tell everyone like it or lump it.

Whos gonna start this though and let themselves be made an example of to scare away the rest of us. I like breathing to much. Sick and tired yes, would help the cause ...yes. Wanna die for something nobody will get to see the positive resultys from..HMMMMM.

I don't really know other than people simply refusing to partake in the system. As it is, we're already seeing tent cities popping up all over the country. There needs to be a different way of thinking by the public. This idea that "I can't survive without a job" needs to stop. People need to learn to be independent and come up with new ideas. As I said, the problem is the Government actively tries to stop you at every corner. Requiring million dollar insurance to drive your own cab is insane though. And good luck trying to get a commercial fishing license.

The system as it is needs to break fully before we really start to see change again, and trust me, we're already down that road. It's just how people will deal with the inevitable when it happens. Can they go without the luxuries of modern society in an attempt to become more self independent or will we continue to be the debt slave welfare queens we are today?

What ever happened to going out, cutting down trees, building your own house, growing your own food and not having to worry about a mortgage, cell phone bill, cable and internet, heat, etc.? Nobody wants to live like a caveman but there can and should be an option for something in between.

I would embrace the system. With all it's faults. I would work hard, and be successful in my endevours. People try and fail every day. But they keep on trying.

People try and succeed every day. Businesses start, entrepeneurs emerge. People lead happy lives, despite the interferences and roadblocks that government throws at you.

We're only slaves if that's how we define ourselves.

As I said in my op, selling a hot dog on a public street in America is illegal. This is acceptable to you? This is the entrepreneurial spirit of those that came before us? To require endless legwork, jump through a thousand hoops, and beg Government permission while forcing the average person to put everything he owns on the line to a bank to sell a simple cup of lemonade? This is not what America was built on and it's the very reason why there is no opportunity left in this county.

You work, you slave... or you end up in a cage. You sell a product without Government permission, you end up in a cage. Sure if you mindlessly wander through life never thinking of what could be you can be happy living in your house with debt up to your eyes... until the bank you helped bail out kicks you out. Ignorance is only bliss until reality hits you.

This guy had a good idea... until they kicked him out. Though that was probably caused by him being so public about it. I heard he's in a new house now and I doubt he'll be so eager to share details on it.

So your philosophy to break free from the bonds of what you consider slavery, would be to take what you want, when you want it.

Did I get that right?

society has rules, the more complex the society, the more rules you have. you want to sell hot dogs to the public, fine...if you don't sell all of them in one day are you going to leave them in the water until tomorrow? two days? sanitation and health laws...how many hot dog stands on the block? 1or 4?...how about juice stands?, taco stands? churro stands? coffee stands? 2 of each?...and how about if you owned a small cafe in back of all these stands? would that hurt your business? should you that has the cafe be taxed differently? who cleans up the sidewalk in front of your cafe? the hot dog guy? or you? where does the hot dog stand throw away his garbage and old water and old food? in the street? or in your garbage can? how big of a sign can he have on his cart? a huge one that hides your sign? can he play polka music loud while he serves his polish dogs with sauerkraut? can he have his 5-yr-old kid there helping? how about having his pit bull guard dog on a leash right by your entrance?
yes,...you had freedom back then, freedom to die from tainted water and food, freedom to step in horse dung in the street, freedom to smell piss and s**t from your neighbors outhouse....life was not all rosy and free back in the days when our constitution was written, it was filled with hardship, grief, and misery not seen in this modern era....get over it or move...vietnam, or the african congo has alot more "freedoms" than the US.

I say right now wouldn't be our oportune time for any major statement because the MSM still has a hold of a majority of Average Joe. We need to allow the misteps of our opponents open the doors to more understanding for us. Every major revolution had a tipping moment that wasn't really planned, but awakened enough people to the value of change, once united the people are unstoppable. I have hopes that my moral code holds firm when and if the government shows up trying to take from me, when they do I will try my best to get the strength from what I believe to be be god, to show in no uncertain terms that I work for no mans success but my own! Do not take me wrong if I find an issue in my area I can help with I will help others to retain their freedoms as well, but an unsolicited act of provacation would only help to further the agenda of controls. Sorry if I sound like a mistrusting conspiracy nut.

Are we to be treated as children then? Are we as this advanced society too stupid not to buy a green hot dog? We need Government to tell us that eating the green hot dog will make us sick?

Then I must ask again, what would be an alternative to the "slavery" that you describe?
