I am not taking about modern tax slavery, bank slavery or marriage slavery. I am talking about true slavery where people are worked to death and traded as livestock. If we do not want to see a world wide return of slavery, we most consider possible hypothetical scenarios where it could return.
First lets look at all the ways that people were traditionally turned into slaves. In the Ancient world if one city/state went to war with another, the loser would be enslaved. The logic behind this was that the loser was damned by the Gods. The thinking at the time was that such people damned by the Gods should be put to death (men, women and children). An exception was made for those to be used as slaves. In the Ancient World Slaves were considered dead people. Hence they had no rights as live human beings.

For those of us playing the home game, these are the legal defintions of terrorism as written by the members of the United States government. It’s a lot to read, isn’t it? Spooky language. Spooky language!
Yesterday we marched on with our continual journey to restore sound money in America. As we do every year, the concerned patriots across the nation gathered and held end the fed rallies. The federal reserve is a private central banking system that is tasked with regulating the flow of cash & credit in the country. How is it that private banks and the federal reserve can create our money and collect interest on it? Nowhere in the U.S. Constitution does it give the authority to a private bank to regulate, control, print & collect interest on our nations currency. Article 1 Section 8 says the following:
The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States; ….
To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;
Not only do they pat you down & search your bags, but people don’t understand that the mere existence of TSA is stifling business throughout the entire airport. Whether it be for the airlines or the companies that operate out of the airport that sell merchandise, I’m sure profits have declined drastically since the TSA has taken over the reigns of security checks.
That means that Freedom (F) times (*) Security (S) equals (=) a constant (k). The suggestion is that you can only add more security at the cost of having less freedom. In reality, the equation is far from being a proof, but the concept is brilliant.
We have some people that would rather have greater freedom, at the cost of reduced security, and we have other people that would rather have more security, even if it costs some freedom.
This dynamic struggle between freedom and security is always a problem. Government could always do more to allow more freedom, and it could always do more to create (at least a sense of) more security. Very rarely, if ever, can a government create both more freedom and more security at the same time. So, we are stuck struggling between the two ideals.
