Why do slaves start to believe they are free, when you simply allow them to choose their master?
Yes, some of you are bound to disagree, but here it is anyway.
As far as I can tell, human beings used to live in anarchy. No laws, no government, living in caves, eating and raping.
At some point, some humans became smart enough to declare them selves leaders, or royalty, and so on.
This is when humans first became slaves, and it was how things were for a very long time.
Eventually the slaves figured out they were being ruled over by a boss, and realized they outnumbered their masters. They then started demanding to be free.
To fix this, voting was introduced, so the slaves could choose their masters, thus making them forget they did not want masters at all.
Now days, we have people working for annual wages that are smaller than what it would cost to house, feed and guard a real slave.
The entire world has been claimed by one asshole or another, with their precious made up flag and so called “offical” laws. The result being that there is no neutral zone for people to be able to opt out.
People are forced to obey the made up rules of the country they happen to be born in to, and the best they can do is choose their boss and master, with no neutral zone to opt out.
Why do people continue to accept this and tolerate it?
But more important, what is it about allowing a slave to choose a master, that tricks the slave in to thinking it has freedom?
