I plan to stay up late, and sleep in tomorrow. Just because I feel like it. Can a slave do that. Or can you?

End of story.
You can search the Internet all night and it will not make any difference. You can read the posts here and most agree it is not some set in stone definition. It is most definitely perspective.
No Lives Matter
Here are more examples...
Forced Labor - This form of slavery often results when individuals are lured by the promise of a good job but instead find themselves subjected to slaving conditions, working without payment and enduring physical abuse, often in harsh and hazardous conditions. Victims include domestic workers, construction workers and migrant workers.
Wage Slavery - s most common in underdeveloped areas, where employers can afford to employ people at low wages, knowing they can't afford to risk their employment. Most child laborers can be considered to be wage slaves.
Contract Slavery - These are generally poor and often illiterate people who have been tricked into signing contracts they do not understand and must be repaid through their labor.
Sex Slavery - Women and children forced into prostitution are often lured by false offers of a good job and then beaten and forced to work in brothels. In other cases, victims pay tens of thousands of dollars to get to another country and are then forced into prostitution in pay off their own debts. In still others, women or children are kidnapped from their home countries. An estimated two million women and children are sold into sex slavery around the world every year.
Debt Bondage - Bonded labor, is the most widely practiced form of slavery around the world. In Southeast Asia, where it is most prevalent, debt bondage claims an estimated 15 to 20 million victims. The staggering poverty there forces many parents to offer themselves or their own children as collateral against a loan. Though they are promised they will work only until their debt is paid off, the reality is that the debt becomes impossible to pay off. As a result, it is often inherited by the bonded laborerís children, perpetuating a vicious cycle that can claim several generations.
All forms of slavery by definition and most require no ownership.

Are you guys still fighting over the definition of slavery?
