I think that's part of the point though.
Perhaps to motivate a person who is a "slave" they must be awakened to the fact that they truly ARE a slave. Perhaps one method of moving out of that "slave" job they are in is start viewing their job through the lense of reality that working for someone else IS slavery so long as you are meant for something MORE than that. And here's the real kicker...for someone who is working a job that they are miserable at, when they are perfectly capable of creating their own business and working for themselves, isn't that a form of slavery? When you purposely hold yourself down from your true potential, isn't that a FORM of slavery...even if the slavery is self-imposed?
It's like in the move The Matrix
where there are people who woke up from their reality to realize they were living in a dream world. Whereas MILLIONS of people didn't question their reality to that point that they realized this...those people, perfectly content to live in that "dream world" never woke up because it wasn't in them to wake up. Even when they won the war in the third movie, it was understand that there would always be a group of people connected to the matrix because they could not handle something different than what they always knew.
Which is what made the character Sipher so dramatic. He knew the real world and wanted to go back to the dream world.
It's kind of a similar thing IMO. Those who know what they are capable of, but purposely choosing to limit themselves due to their beliefs.
