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. 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?

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

. 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.
