THE EVOLUTION OF SLAVERY
Slavery exists wherever exit, and return to subsistence, is practically impossible.
Slavery: violence slave
Serfdom: land slave
Employee: wage slave
Consumer: credit slave
Citizen: tax slave
The only freedom is food, water, and shelter, self-sufficiency, with participation in the market purely voluntary.
And only commissions on transactions payment for the commons.
Yet all of us must be paid for policing of the commons if we police it – dividends.
With self-sufficiency and payment for commons we gain liberty. All else is slavery.
Roughly speaking each person could take 10k in dividends at present. Between self-sufficiency and 10k in dividends on our continuous investment in the commons, we would possess liberty.
Otherwise we’re just farmed.
