"I'm a slave of society" is an example, and somewhat correct in that most poor people depend on society to provide for them, and in a sense they feel trapped where they are without hope of escape. Which is why the term came about I guess, but it's a false sense of hopelessness. Everyone in america, with a desire, and without some sort of mental illness or debilitating condition (and even some of them) can better themselves. Most of the welfare babies don't want to better themselves, they like being taken care of.

As to slaves in the origional sense, it's obviously wrong. If you don't think so, go get captured and become a slave for a while...I think you'll agree after a week and be begging to come home. The most inhumane condition of slavery isn't the beatings, isn't the lack of food, isn't the horrible living's the fact that you can't say the next day "ok, that's enough....I'm outa here" Freedom to choose.

So why'd this question need to be asked? Just a random question, or looking for some justification Winter? :wink:

I think Winter just likes seeing us talk about stuff, and I think that he likes seeing us get angry when he says stupid stuff. I can't think of any other reason for it. - A proud Red State Conservative, and Un-Reconstructed Southerner!

Oh, what kind of stupid-ass question is "Is slavery wrong?" anyway. WTF.
Okay all of you geeks - PUG is not just a gaming term... It's also a breed of dog. And a type of handgun, so don't make fun of my dog.
