Does it seem that slavery has simply been moved offshore, to third-world/disadvantaged/corrupt nations, in order to support the "needs" of wealthy countries? ::cough:: Like the United States of Amer

The great irony of communism, practiced by authoritarian regimes, is that those regimes aren't immune to greed. Once they gain complete control and trust, they can then sell out their people into slavery, ex China. They ask multinational capitalist corporations to move factories and offices there, offer up their own slave workforce by convincing their people to abandon rural life and move to these mega overpopulated (and polluted) cities, and profit off the deal. Corporations do it because the cost is so low, the Chinese government does it to make money, we were are ok with it so we can get cheaper high-fashion clothes and iPhones. Don't ever trust a monopoly of law and commerce.

Have corporations "cleverly" moved our slave labor overseas, so you don't have to stare it in the face and deal with the guilty feelings?

Do not even mention sex slavery in the Tumen River region between Russia, China and north Korea. These *clinics* are simply designed to fulfill the sexual lusts of womanizers RIGHT HERE in the USA! And sex slavery is if anything even -worse- than slave labor so there will be no coming back of it to the USA but that does not mean that either kind of slavery will ever be -abolished-.

Are you being sarcastic, or are you being quite serious?

Unfortunately, slavery and racism is a world wide atrocity. It has been around since the beginning of time. It will probably still be around until the end of time. It is an evil that exists because man is unwilling to admit they could be wrong, feed their own egos that they are better, and most of all ignorance. No one is free from the shame in their own life, their surrounding neighbors, their countries, the world. Not all slavery and racism take on destructive postures, but some minor slavery might show as a personal event. Slavery to weight control, certain foods like chocolate, etc. Racism appears sometimes only in a fleeting thought, but it always does show up in human life. It might be a simple thought like, why did (those you add the adjective) type people live in the neighborhood. You might think it when you drive by their unkempt yard, their dirty kids playing in the mud, the lady that goes to the mailbox in her pj's. Not really racist in the terms of color, but racist because you categorize them as different than you.

Yes they have, but only temporarily. Don't worry, the ultimate goal is to bring slave labor jobs back to the good ol' US of A!

Increasing gap between the rich and poor. Constant battle to weaken the already pathetic labor unions. (I know the folks on the right and certain cable news programs like to talk about "big unions", but look to our past and to other countries especially in Europe and you'll see how tin and pathetic unions in the US are). And credit card and other debt.

All these things are designed to get the average American to a point where they are so in debt they will have to take any job, no matter how low the wage. It's kind of like in Central America. The farm owner promises the worker a salary of 1000 dollars, for example, and gives him a house to stay at on the farm. Only problem is the salary comes at the end of the year, in bulk, and you can use credit from the farmer until then. When the end of the year comes, with rent, food, medicine, and whatever else, you owe the farmer more than your salary and end up a life long worker forever trying to pay off your debt.

That is the kind of system they would like to have here, and we're moving toward it. Oh, and the contraception issue fits into this. They dont want poor people to have contraception because they need a big population for this to be effective. You see, in this kind of a system the indentured servants tend to get sick and die. So you need the females to produce as many replacements as possible.

Welcome to the new world order!

Dead serious.
Oh and how could this happen? Wont the people use the political process to stop this? If the political process fails wont the rise up? Not a chance.

You see the people in the upper class, lets call the the bourgeoisie can influence and divide the people of the lower classes, lets call them the proletariat. They divide people in a number of ways. Groups is one the proletariat gets people to hate each other for stupid reasons, like race or sexual orientation. They also use insignificant "wedge issues" like abortion, gay rights, religion, whatever. The point is to keep the proletariat arguing with each other while the bourgeoisie consolidates power. So while we spit at each other over abortion rights, the rich pass laws favorable to them in their effort to consolidate power for the new world order.

Oh, and the most clever thing they do is convince people to fight their fight for them! They actually get people to argue against their own interests and in favor of the interests of the rich! Sneaky b#st#rds use mouth pieces in the media and politicians to convince people that what is in the best interest of the rich is actually also in the best interest of the poor! In Wisconsin they passed laws to cut taxes for the rich and at the same time convinced people that teachers, firefighters, and police offers were greedy (can you be "greedy" while making 30k per year? Not sure how that works)! We have a budget gap and its all these fat cat teachers faults! And these poor rich people are paying too much in taxes, we need to cut their taxes. No, it wont create an even deeper budget gap because of the lose of revenue! It will create jobs! Because these rich fat cats who just sit on their money and watch the pile build, are actually "job creators"! Now go get those greedy teachers who are destroying our country!

"We need to cut taxes for the rich, especially the estate tax that way wealth can accumulate in families over generations! And we need to get rid of social programs which benefit the lower and middle classes, that way there will be more money to give in oil subsidies and weapons systems!" Weapons systems by the way serve the duel purpose of handing tax money to the rich (talk about redistribution of wealth, tax the whole country, then hand a majority of that money to the rich executives of the military industrial complex) while also serving the purpose of creating tools to help "control" the poor clases. Wouldn't wan't them to get out of hand would we?!
