If you haven't a choice, this can be seen as slavery. You are virtually forced
to work. Don't get me wrong here. As a teenager, I worked on the production
line and also in Burger King (washing and cleaning there and elsewhere).
Unlike some aristocrats talking for the poor (or 'humanitarians' on a high
horse), I think I know what I'm talking about... and I think I can spot
slavery when I see it. Using fancy words to avoid the negative connotation
of "slavery" (often visualised using an image of dark people and whips)
doesn't make it much different.

It never ceases to amaze me how many people blindly accept, defend and even
encourage some of the most broken, corrupt, and unethical things that we have
ruining our **world** (not just the human race, aka "society"). And you know
something? That, among other things, leads to terrorism. Wait until people's
homes get flooded because of global warming. When it comes to revolt and
terrorism, you ain't seen nothing yet! The Western world thinks it can 'cuff'
people rather than resolve the issues (using censorship, spying, draconian
laws, and whatnot). It's just a ticking bomb waiting to explode. You can't
suppress and dumb-down an exploited large majority forever.

When more world wars erupt, all one should say is "we did to ourselves."
