Anyone who uses the labor of another person without payment or representation is enslaving that person. George Washington was asked why he fought against his lawful king. He replied that part of his labor was used to pay taxes for which he received no representation. That meant that he was a slave. The percentage of “slavery” was not relevant: any portion of the theft of the fruits of your labor is enslavement.
We know that we are slaves in this country. We may even deserve it for our transgressions and apathy. But the logic remains: we are as much enslaved as we are in a cold civil war.
