Mar. 15, 2012 - Slavery in All Their Forms

Slavery In All Their Forms
In 1948 Canada signed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) wherein we read:

Article 4.
* No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.

Modern forms of slavery 

  • Chattel slavery
  • Bonded labour
  • Debt bondage
  • Serfdom
  • Other forms of forced labour
    • Where passports are confiscated to confine freedom
    • Where a worker is 'kept in captivity' as a servant

Black's Law Dictionary 2nd edition states:

SLAVE. A person who is wholly subject to the will of another; one who has no freedom of action, but whose person and services are wholly under the control of another. Webster.

Per the Oxford English Dictionary, a "slave" is:

  • (especially in the past) a person who is the legal property of another and is forced to obey them
  • a person who works very hard without proper remuneration or appreciation

As a Principle of Law, slavery is not a difficult one to identify. 

Are you "forced to obey" in any area of your social life? By "forced" there must be no contractual obligation to perform, since that then comes by your own agreement—assuming full disclosure etc. Do you want to pay income tax? Are you being forced to comply with statutory law? Do you want to buy a licence to use your boat? to have a dog? etc.

Do receive "proper renumeration" for what you do for them? Anything that requires an effort on your part is labour. When agents for a municipality, province, or federal government required something of you, did they pay you for your labours? Do you work for them for free? Ever been requested to "pull over" and/or "step out of the car" for free?

The litmus test for slavery is a simple one. Start to use it for all those things you've been programmed to respond to mindlessly and for free.
