Everyone keeps telling me how educational the new International Slavery Museum is and I keep meaning to take a tour but I thought it would be interesting to see if anyone thinks slavery still exists and in what form.

Anybody who isn't upper class is a slave...


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.

Using bartering instead of money is probably making you more of a slave, not less. Not only are those cultures slave to material things, they are slaves in that they have to manually produce their own "currency". I personally prefer being slave to money...

In a sense we are slave to life. And that makes us slave to God lol (unless your'e atheist). Naw, more seriously most of us are our own slaves, driven by our own mind.

No... Bartering makes much more sense in my opinion, and besides, we are far more enslaved to our materials now than we were previously. Trading goods for goods makes more sense than trading a piece of paper for goods imo.

Yes you do have a point there. But don't forget that the real slavery kicks in when you have to produce your bartering goods. You can't just go to work and get paid by meat, potatoes and other vegetables and whatever. You have to be a farmer growing most things you'll need. that's slavery IMO.
