Was slavery a good thing?

Post by Cornfed » January 2nd, 2019, 1:05 am

A problem with civilisation is that in the normal course of events a few people end up owning all the wealth while the rest starve. Suppose the currency in a given region is gold and you have a lot of gold. You will be able to loan your gold at interest since most ventures will require start-up gold. Hence you will get richer while the rest of society gets collectively poorer. Eventually you will have all the gold and everyone else will have none. Hence there needs to be some kind of redistribution system from the haves to the have nots. There are a couple of problems that tend to arise though. If you allow the plebs to vote themselves unlimited free stuff they will tend to bring about failed communist states like Zimbabwe and Venezuela and giving people unconditional free stuff tends to turn them into useless degenerates. Therefore you need a good mechanism for redistributing wealth.

One such mechanism is slavery. The slaves could be kept in line by their owners who would be prepared to spend more money on their upkeep than they would on rented laborers due to pride of ownership. Although chattel slave labor is less efficient than wage slave labor in most contexts, perhaps we should look at restoring chattel slavery.

If it were restored, which end of the slave-owner relationship would you be on?

I'd imagine it would depend what other changes were made, but statistically most non-rich people would be more likely to become slaves than masters.

You’re probably right, but for the average normie slavery under reasonable terms would probably suit them fine by, as Adolf would say, relieving them of the burden of freedom which few can bare.

I think it is better to be a cared for slave than a homeless starving free born. As long as slave contract was mutually acceptable I think society and government should allow it.

Ah yes, the other redistribution mechanism of handing people large sums of money for having a vagina. If only our ancestors had abolished that instead of slavery.

That's no excuse for pandering to vagina bearers. There is to reason to lavishly to reward doing something that even comatose females can do, and since most Western females aren't even having children there is no reason to waste resources on their upkeep at all.

Bringing thieving parasitical criminals like you to justice has to start somewhere.

Your crimes were not committed within the law. Fraud and most likely perjury are not lawful. The family court is an ongoing criminal enterprise just like most of the rest of the establishment.
