Re: Get Real

The political ideology of outrage about people not being required to do anything, has let to a whole raft of working for free or below the minimum wage: work for the dole, apprenticeships, unpaid internships, new blends of working below minimum wage government subsidised. Conveniently reducing the cost of paying unemployment benefits, and lowering the official stats.

But how is this ideology different to the mindset of slave owners?

Did some slave owners think they were doing a good thing by saving the slaves from idleness, giving them work experience, and providing them with 'free' food.
