Slavery implies that someone owns you and that you are doing work for that person for free.Community service, chain gangs or requiring welfare mooches to work is not slavery, it is punishment for committing an illegal activity. or to make sure they are earning the money in exchange for certain aid.I do think welfare mooches should have to work.Now when I am saying welfare mooch I am not talking about everyone on welfare. I am talking about the able bodied adult who is not working while collecting welfare, not people who do work while collecting welfare or people who are crippled or not able bodied. Chain gangs and community service generally should be for non-for profit work.Convicted criminals should not be doing jobs that someone would normally get paid to do like construction work,or some other job especially when we have unemployment.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
I voted three. I lied of course but I felt the effort put into formulating that option deserved some credit.
Slavery implies ownership by human(s) over another or more. The buck stops long before that.
