bible advocates communism but not on national scale.

it says if 4 or 5 of christian families share everything in common, they shall never want for anything.

i mean if you thought about that, the economics of that. sharing housing, food, cars, long term, for say 20 years, you'd save enough money to live wealthy, all of you together , live wealthy as a group

Is this modern enslavement?

For me it is disgusting because you can't leave your workplace, even if your kids get sick.

So my question is, who invented this 8 hour enslavement?

It used to be 16-18 hours. Now it's just useless federal law.

"The eight-hour day movement or 40-hour week movement, also known as the short-time movement, was a social movement to regulate the length of a working day, preventing excesses and abuses. Although it is claimed it had its origins in the Industrial Revolution in Britain, where industrial production in large factories transformed working life. The use of child labour was common. The working day could range from 10 to 16 hours, and the work week was typically six days a week.[1][2] Robert Owen had raised the demand for a ten-hour day in 1810, and instituted it in his socialist enterprise at New Lanark. By 1817 he had formulated the goal of the eight-hour day and coined the slogan: "Eight hours' labour, Eight hours' recreation, Eight hours' rest". Women and children in England were granted the ten-hour day in 1847. French workers won the 12-hour day after the February Revolution of 1848.[3] A shorter working day and improved working conditions were part of the general protests and agitation for Chartist reforms and the early organisation of trade unions."

In the US we work usually 10 hours (eat at desk) a day and don't use all of our 2 weeks of vacation.

TPTB thanks you for raising your children who are registered at birth also. They love that you depend on their dollar to do anything at all. It makes them happy that you believe in the independence brainwashing when you would starve without their dollars. It brings a smile to their face when your children are even more clueless and dependent on the systems than you are.

God forbid anyone grow perma-culture gardens/orchards or raise chickens in their yards. Slaves are only allowed green grass that they have to mow weekly.

It is funny you say that. You see, we all had that ,we were lured away from that into cities and suburbs and into long hour jobs with enough pay for the food and services you use to provide for your family and with enough left over for a little extra. That little extra is little by little gone and the food and services have been perverted to pick pocket us of money in quality of goods and healthily nature of our food going down but corporate profits going up.

Slavery with extra steps...

At least you get to choose the business you sell your soul to! Or you can fight the system entirely and likely become mentally ill or homeless or addicted to drugs.

I also worked 8 hours a day for 2,5 years for a company but realized, no, just no, this is absolutely nothing I will continue on.

For me it was modern enslavement, you become a slave because you are not alowed to leave your workplace, only to get some eat once a day. This is crazy horseshit.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78339618


Do like I did, You have to Plan your retirement and work towards it, or you'll be a working slave until you die.

I retired at 37 years of age, 16 sweet years ago. I am 53 loving life in Sunny Florida :-)

Whats your plan?

Funny how 'social security' has a shortfall...but never WELFARE!
Gimme a break.
Somehow, we can always afford ALL types of welfare (even for millions of illegal immigrants!), plus billions in foreign aid to nations that hate us...BUT...social security is a "problem".

Nah, the problem is the goobermint...Unknown AC.

The election of Donald Trump didn't cause the hatred displayed by the progressive liberal left and democratic party. The election of Donald Trump exposed it.

Get the UN out of the US.

If we can effectively kill the national pride and patriotism of just one generation, we will have won that country. Therefore, there must be continued propaganda abroad to undermine the loyalty of citizens in general, and teenagers in particular. By making drugs of various kinds readily available, by creating the necessary attitude of chaos, idleness and worthlessness, and by preparing him psychologically and politically, we can succeed.

German is right. Work as we see today is a result of industrial revolution. This soft slavery and hard slavery in some countries will be gone in 20 years with AI and robots fill over 70% of workplaces being much more effective than human worker.

It's only part of global population which wasn't able to comprehend scientific and technological progress of last 30 years. Many people mentality is 50, 100 years or more behind actual modern world and they don't believe or even fight against everything which they can't spot in their neighborhood despite it is officially confirmed and worked on implementing. Paradoxically slave minded morans are fighting in defense of their own enslavement while living in the past.
