They do have a perpetual chance. Gather the resources to go someone else and renounce your citizenship.I can agree that children have no way to offer their consent and thus it is up to the parents to offer it, but once the child is old enough to offer it there is no reason to not give them the chance.
'Involuntary' action does not equate with slavery. Not being allowed to make some choices in exchange for having some privileges is exactly what citizenship entails. True slavery is making no meaningful choices for in exchange for no privileges.It is a completely invalid argument to claim that one must free themselves of slavery if they don't desire to be under the command of others as if their slave holder has a claim to own them that must be thrown to the side for them to no longer be owned.
Homo sapiens are "thieves, murderers, and slaveholders" by nature (see what happened to our nearest genetic relatives), so that's about what I would expect. Not having a government in Iceland didn't make its male inhabitants less likely to go raiding for slaves or treasure, and limited legal authority in the West and other frontiers didn't make its inhabitants gentler and less greedy.Government is not evolution, but the sign of the failure of the human race to command their own destiny and not be commanded and ruled by their fellow human beings. The very reality that they never consented to it and never organized it only brings to light the reality that government is only a band of thieves, murderers, and slave holders. That government is simply the bane on the existence of the human race and further development of humanity.
On some levels, that is both possible and the right thing to do. In periods of greater uncertainty and higher danger, it is neither.Yes, banding together to protect resources is a great thing, as it will surely be more effective than doing it alone, but it should also be done by the consent of those involved.

If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
