QUOTE (SPOILER @ Jan 5 2010, 01:22 PM) *
i know what's wage slavery is. it's not that bad in where i stay but it's still is a form of slavery. u can't do anything except after being APPROVED. Come on! the wage is only enough to survive a month and u have to keep coming back. there are much worst stuffs in asia. What good is money when u r working 12 hours a day, 6 days a week and too tired to do anything on the off-day. i think it is a form of slavery really. isn't it?

Considering slaves used to work for food (they had no choice) and your wage just helps you scrape by until the next month I would say it's slavery yes.

In some countries, no.

The reason is that when heartless says something stupid, he really means it and believes it.

leave the job? yes, but the next one will be similar as i have been hopping jobs. But to leave the country, frankly, i dont have guts and $. it's so called a free country. and if you are interested, i am living in Singapore. just a tiny city state smaller than New York. only way to survive is to have a job at all times.

sure.but thinking that doesn't ease me a bit if you know what i mean.and starving to death isn't that far away either considering we don't have any farm/natural products and money is what we are eating with.if there is a global food crisis, we are the first to starve to death in Asia.

Slavery exists in almost every country. Sex slaves. Women are coming from eastern Europe as sex slaves.
There's industrial slavery too, in particular in China.
The list goes on and on.

I should add I'm not a sex slave. I'm in the internet and gaming kind of slavery. Voluntarily...

Have you ever went to Dubai? Chad? Of course there is slavery, but today, in the civilized world, there is less.
I bet you'd like to have some black girl to be your personal slave 24 \ 7, don't you.

If you're going to add half arsed comments to stay within the forum rules just to add a personal dig at me then you're not not going to be here long. Start using the place properly because you're getting on everyones nerves.


Well sorry for that black girl thing.

Don't listen to him. There's always an exception if you're bagging on Marney.

I have a slave. Her name is D-O and she's from a land of gays.

Slavery exists in ALL countries across the planet. I don't know why people keep saying "most countries" because there aren't any that don't have slaves. Also black people weren't exclusive in slave trade. White slaves were called "indentured servants" that was supposed to work a debt off of over a period of several years. However in most cases the debt got larger as time passed. Then there was debtor prisons and workhouses. I like what Dr. Who said;

QUOTE
Donna: A great big empire, built on slavery.
The Doctor: It's not so different from your time.
Donna: Oy! I haven't got slaves.
The Doctor: Who d'you think made your clothes?

Silly how? I don't think so.



It's true that slavery exists everywhere, but not like in the old days. At least slavery is not legal in most countries... and no economy is built on slavery to the same extent as the southern US states once was.

Alot of (white) people from Norway and other European countries was captured as slaves and brought to North Africa during the past centuries.

Please, Africa is still a slave dominated nation. The US South wasn't the worst. And I meant that it was silly to think that because someone else has to make a shirt, then that means their automatically enslaved. I hate those people who think that we haven't abolished slavery until we reach a star trek status.

If we're getting metaphorical you could say that the upper classes are slaves to money... but then practically everyone is, and those that aren't are considered outcasts from society. I think there are very few cultures left where a monetary system hasn't taken over and bartering is still the main form of exchange.
