Slavery Is Alive and Well Today… but Not in the Way Many Expect

"Slaves are made in many ways. Some are enslaved by human traffickers. Others are born into servitude because their government claims to be their master. Still others seek out their own slavery by exchanging liberty for security."

    Getting a litical political here -- The Democrats are masters at the latter of the methods. they create the impression of vote for us and you'll never be hungry, cold or lonely.
    In practice that is exactly where a vast majority of the Dem Voters wind up either literally or figuratively. Cold, Hungry and lonely.
    They (Democrats) destroy personal initiative and self-reliance to make the "servent" class.

    Monarchy, Socialism. Islamic Theocracy and Communism are all movements that enslave everyone under the control of a corrupted elite.

    2016 Russian interference via social media propaganda is the scapegoat of the Socialists for Why Hillary lost.

    Uh...Russian propaganda has been interfering with the USA since before 1916. And not just with our elections, but it's propaganda has changed the entire culture and education of the USA. There have been very few grass roots movements or protests that have not been created , supported and organized by Soviet, Communist and Socialist Money .

    Not to mention Islamists (such as original Black Panthers active in the 60's) who created the whole "racist" narrative. Black power and taking on Islamic names for "Black identity" was actually Islamic Jihad power.and Identity.
    Now it is finally out in the open and Socialists are desperately trying to poo poo and hide it again just like they did in 1993 by painting the Islamic jihadists as idiots influenced by a blind sheik. No mention of Islamic influence. Saudi money to Clinton assured that. Even today the 9/11 Islamic Jihad massacre is being propagandized by those same actors and their propaganda as being a CIA plot with no Muslims involved.

    Not to mention: To control how people think, control how they talk...isn't this a form of slavery?

      Well our talk is already being controlled, with this stupid 'political correctness'. The think part may be slightly more difficult but considering the late term abortion craziness, I am unsure as to whether or not we are there.

        The political correctness effort is maintained and enforced by
        1. the Main stream Media
        2. Social Media
        3. The educational System
        4. The university system and
        5. The employment system.
        If you say anything that is not politically correct in any of these environments you are immediately hammered. I and several others have posted multiple examples of such going on in all of these venues./
        The only way to break this hold it has is to utilize its techniques against them just as they use it agains any free thinker and Free Speech advocate. Make fun of their approact to rational thought (if you can call it that). point out the stupidity of their statements. go on any relatively free speech platform and have your say. Make the PCer pay the price of being jerks and saying stupid things, just as they try to do with their opponents.

        electing trump was a dagger in the heart of political correctness. Look at the vitriol people face for even wearing a MAGA hat. Trump puts up with this hatred EVERY DAY. We should follow his lead.

          It would be in fact "Hatred" if we could only punch them in the face and not get arrested. To be hate, a dislike Must be accompanied by physical animosity....at least a slap upside the head...no?

                I am concluding that all the talk about the leftists being good people but just ignorant on economics is just bullshit. They are evil people who know exactly what they are doing is much more like it.

                  Well, yes they are doing it, and it is on purpose...now, I am not so sure they are aware of that. I say that because, to think and do such things would be against their conscious yet they seem to not have one iota of conscience aside from the virtue signaling they engage in.

                  My point?...I don't think they are Conscious Human Beings...I think they truly are, parasitical psychopathic humanoids with a whopper of a made up conscience that only serves their own temptations. (hubris...thinking they are better than all of us).

                    I guess we could say the same for the nazis too, kind of like the walking dead. No wonder the walking dead tv show is so popular. It’s not really about zombies but about unthinking humans !!

    Don't forget the slave trafficking, with which Hillary's name has been connected. Then there is the equally Dem and Republican slavery of young children via the Congressional pedophile ring, which operated under Bush Sr, through Obama, with their knowledge, according to old newpaper screen shots, which the current mainstream media would not touch. Children are enslaved mentally via our public school system of indoctrination. How can any of them realize true freedom and the responsibilites of it with the currernt system?

    The solution to today's enslavement to Political Party is not to have political parties as George Washington Warned us.
    Failing that fix the Constitution to once again eliminate the corrupting influence of excessive power and money. Abolish Political Campaigns in favor of 3 mandatory debates transmitted to everyone who is interested and a web page. Do not allow ANY political contributions not even to a presidential library (Saudi influence was purchased in this manner).
    Good luck getting Congress to act on this.
