What is your opinions do you agree all people really want to be is Slaves or be the Enslavers?
How would you classify people who want equality and freedom for all... such as the founding fathers who broke away from the repressive British Empire to create a free republic. Or Lincoln, who fought to outlaw slavery. How would you classify such men who already wield great power yet fight for the freedom of those they rule over?
They were all great men in their own right as history fairly remembers them, but that doesnt change anything im arguing they still play to the system of controller and subordinate.

I wonder if in each human their is a little control freak trying to get out and be anointed with control over his/her small or big slice of life.
Human beings constantly manipulate the environment. Every time we construct something "man-made", we are 'controlling' the environment, for example. Intrinsic to our [human] conscious experience is the drive to control. We don't need any ATS thread to show this. We are control freaks. All of us, constantly controlling and wanting control. I think what you really mean to say is there are 'right' and 'wrong' things to want to control?
