Later on in this thread the "referring" to what freedom is, got taken to the
workplace. Straightway minumum wage-earners were taken up with thier
meager earnings as being something like slave labour.

You posters seemed to have a "sensitive" spot for such posts in such way.

My posts in this thread are my "minds' worth" from having read this thread.

FYI, jane doe.

If you believe that freedom is an illusion; you should then be intelligent enough to know that without freedom, slavery exists.

I suggest you look above at your comment and you will see the word ILLUSION.

It's not true in your case.

If you're a low wage earner in the States it may well look like you're just some form of exploited slave. The situation in the US is far worse than the UK because the economy is geared so differently. The way the economy is managed in the US is just asking for more and more exploitation of 'wage-slaves'.

Its just so common for people in the US, and this can include people in the middle-class as well, to find themselves with not enough money to pay the monthly bills and being forced to work weekends and at nights. Despite the American Dream many US citizens not only don't own their own home but are forced to live in trailer parks.

However I think the full extent of wage-slavery is actually far worse than this and far more insidious.

There is a huge amount of pressure on children at school to become socially useful units of society and this 'socialist-like' programming is at the complete expense of the individual. They teach children how to be respectful of their so-called betters and in this regard they become regimented. They also instil a sense of unquestioning social compliance.

Governments at the end of the day don't seem to care about individuals and their proper development, all that matters is that the limited funds of tax payers money were well spent and that they got their money's worth.

Yes, wage-slavery.

Apart from, that is, wearing iron manacles and have lash marks on your back of course.
