  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    "...young men in particular, who crave a sense of power and freedom in their lives," Versus young women, who just naturally love powerless submission???...
  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    Something makes me suspect that you'd either have to cap income/wealth or outlaw debt or this'll be rigged very quickly. If someone can offer a good or service that costs more than the purchaser's disposable income...and offers to sell it...
