If you think about it though, unless you are at the executive level,
most jobs are technically positions of slavery, because you are giving
over a large portion of your day in servitude to a corporate body,
organization or business that is structured in a hierarchical fashion.
Technically, that is slavery. There's no way around it. But of course,
the system tries to convince you that it's not by getting you to think
that YOU are the one that wants it. But even if you don't, you have to
anyway cause you need the money to pay your bills. Hence, whether you want it or not, the employment enslavement is "forced" upon you by the system.
Overall, the system tries its best to make you a "happy slave" by
repackaging slavery as freedom. This is a form of spin illusion that
reverses the meaning of "slavery" and "freedom". For example, freedom in
America means "the freedom to work and make money"
which in other words means "the freedom to choose your form of
enslavement". And being free of this enslavement is to be a "miserable
unemployed person who is seeking a job", as defined by the system. This
basically means that it is a bad thing not be a slave.

It's a play on words that turns
truth into its opposite. And it's no different than preachers telling
Christians who have submitted to the fundamentalist laws of the Bible
that they have been "set free from sin", or fascist dictators telling
their populace that they've been "set free from chaos and disorder", etc. So in this case, when you turn into a corporate slave, you are "set free from unemployment".
Essentially, the system's false logic is that slavery = being "set free" from freedom.
This is nonsensical of course, but you aren't meant to see it the way
it really is. Instead you are meant to see the inverse of the way it
really is. That's the scam and brainwashing. It's a classic form of
propaganda where you divert attention from something by declaring it to
be its opposite. And it has been used time and time again throughout
history in all areas of life where mass control is needed. Thus it's no
wonder that Michael Ellner stated:
