Lately a number of elected Republicans have waxed nostalgic about the good old days of American slavery. It wasn't so bad, they say. They seem to try to make slavery into something even attractive. I am sorry to say, for them, that slavery is illegal in the USA these days.
However, if they so desire to become slaves maybe there is a way. There is, in modern America, a small market for slaves and slavery, but mostly that's in the sex trade, and all these Republicans are old, unattractive men. So there's nothing for them there. We could, perhaps, suggest they become slaves in some other nation, where the practice continues. Or we might get them into a starter program, such as being a semi-indentured peon working in the vast, $Multi-billion illegal labor market.
In that regard, Republicans have also praised child labor. We might get their spoiled children jobs in the fields, right along with Mom and Pop. The little darlings would learn the wonderful character-building lessons their parents so much praise. The darlings would have to forego their smart phones, however, and lose the ability to describe their wonderful, character-building, muscle-toning experiences on both/either Facebook or Twitter: some sacrifices are called for, we all know.
Or perhaps, closer to true slavery, we could get the lot of them, the whole bunch of families, jobs in the Chinese factories which make their I-Phones and I-Pads!! That's a wonderful solution. They could all enjoy virtual slavery together. What fun for them! Dreams come true!!!
Or perhaps I have this all wrong. Are they actually praising slavery as something good for you, not them? Is their extolling of slavery, child labor, and abusive labor systems actually done for selfish and immoral reasons?
Or, granting these Republicans the benefit of the doubt, do they actually think they, as individuals, would benefit from these practices?
What do you think?
