What is slavery? Well let us suppose Jewish rules applied (look up Jewish laws on slavery if the topic interests you). It is saying, “You can manage my life better than I can.”

What does government tell us these days? “We can manage your life better than you can.”

I really wish the anti-slavers applied that proposition to all realms. Well hope does spring eternal. But it is unwise for me to run my life on it. I have a police state to contend with. A not extremely severe one (yet) to be sure. But still.

H/T Popehat where the topic came up for discussion in the comments.
