How Prison Labor is the New American Slavery and Most of Us Unknowingly Support it

As we all know, there is no democracy in the United States today. We left that behind years ago when we decided to trade in freedom and dignity for efficiency, technological advances and gadgets of convenience.

Then, it was cemented when we decided to place more importance on protecting the wealth of wealthy people and nonsensical, patriotic flag waving than on taking care of our fellow citizens. We protect the health of the economy, but not the health of the people. We protect the Second Amendment while shitting on the First Amendment. We build prisons and banks while defunding schools.

Is it any wonder so few people in the U.S. know anything about the Constitution or even care about civil rights? We know the names of the newest television stars, but don’t know how our government is supposed to work.

Since we sold the rights to what was once our elections to corporate interests, the only way we have to make our opinions known is to vote with our wallets.

  1. thanks for sharing this slavery !
    may all be free
    from their prisons ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I concur. May all beings be free to live in peace. (And that includes the self-enforced prisons of our minds). ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. *from* the self-enforced prisons of our minds ๐Ÿ˜†

  4. sounds deep,
    profound & true ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. It would be a beautiful thing for all beings on the planet if humans would evolve to a more enlightened existence.

  6. Thanks for sharing this! Many do not realize (or admit) that they are giving away respectively gave away democracy. It was never more evident than today: a government run as a corporation. And as we all should know, there is no workplace democracy in corporations. As I don’t get tired of repeating:-): Cooperativism provides a feasible alternative to the capitalist exploitation.

  7. You are absolutely correct and, until more people learn this truth, we will continue to exist in a horribly corrupt, seriously dysfunctional society based on greed, desire, appearance and exploitation of others.

    Thank you for your insightful comment. I wish you well.
