How is choosing to work for a corporation slavery?? This is one of the things that so many people seem to follow you on, but I disagree wholeheartedly with this. This is not directed at you personally Steve but to all those who subscribe without thinking about the consequences. All of the below you's are general:
Do you own a car? Did you make this car yourself? Did you make all the parts that go into this car?
Do you live in a house or apartment or something similar? Did you make this house yourself? Did you get all the material necessary through barter?
Do you wear clothes bought from a store? Or did you make all your clothes? Did you make the materials to make these clothes?
Do you use a computer? Did you make this computer? Did you make all the parts that go into this computer?
Do you use a bank? play cd's? watch movies? go to sporting events? etc. etc.
Some of the threads above yours talk about getting rid of corporations. Are we going to go back to the 1800's because some people want to be independent of it? And are they truly independent of it?
Why do so many people on this forum try to make me feel guilty because I LIKE my job? I work for a corporation and at this point in time have no desire to open my own business. Could this change? Sure, but why would I want to subject everyone else who does work for someone else with MY desire not to? I think a lot of people just go along with this slavery idea because it is something that you subscribe to. They want to be non-conformists by conforming with your thoughts.
I'm probably going to get a lot of flack for posting this, but I don't choose to be silent on this anymore because if you haven't noticed, it pushes one of my buttons
In conclusion, I work for a corporation and I choose to do so of my own free will. I ENJOY it!! What's wrong with that??
