I’ve been telling people since March of last year the following course of events which I predict based on demographics, social trends and electoral process.
1. Hillary Clinton will be our next president.
2. We will have a nuclear incident in August of Hillary’s first year in office.
3. Millions of Americans are going to die from exposure, lack of potable water, sanitary facilities and food.
I’ll fill in the reasoning:
For the first event, I am using much the same heuristics that I used to call the 2012 election for Obama: Demographic shift. Last November, I saw it in my own neck of the woods, as our entire town shifted hard left after the election, throwing out Republicans across the board and electing Democrats from top to bottom.
On a national scale, progressive leftist ideology is on the rise and is rallying hard. We see the socio-economic entropy approaching an event horizon now, where things go hyperbolic and start to happen with a frightening swiftness.
The demographics have tipped in 2008: we are a nation where the non productive takers now outnumber the productive givers.
The choice of Bernie Sanders, a rich, old man, the type that leftists typically deride, with his fairy tale story that magical unicorns will shit Skittles for the working class, will take enough votes away from other Democrat contenders to all but ensure that Hillary wins the nomination.
On the Republican side, Donald Trump is gaining popularity with the protectionists among us. But his bullish ways won’t be welcome in the White House, so his role is relegated to diluting the voting base for Republicans, ensuring a Democrat victory.
For the second event, the nuclear deal with Iran is a present that will keep on giving. In August of next year, it will give to millions of Americans once more, in the form of mass death. Here’s how I expect it to go down:
The Iranians will bring a container ship close to the New York harbor area. On it, will be a crude but effective nuclear device, attached to an improvised missile launcher. This device will reach an altitude of several thousand feet before it detonates over New York City. Immediate damage will be significant but not devastating, as the bomb will likely have a yield under 12kT. 100,000 people will die from the direct effects of the bomb within the first two weeks. The majority of that will be radiation poisoning.
Event number three follows closely: The more catastrophic problem will be that the EMP from the bomb’s detonation so far into the northern hemisphere will result in great amplification of the EMP effect. This will destroy key (and hard to replace) components of the power grid. The grid will become non functional from Nova Scotia to Tallahassee, FL and to the west as far as the Ohio River Valley.
The grid will be down for 9-12 months, as key transformers need to be built and shipped from China to the US. It is during that time that approximately nine million people will die from the lack of sanitation, water food and electricity. Riots and battles for survival with the scarce remaining food and fuel resources will ensue. Gradually, 2-3 weeks after the rioting dies down, more people will die from diseases and food-born illnesses brought on by lack of refrigeration and a population inexperienced at surviving without modern technology.
As winter approaches, (and it will be a cold winter as our sun enters a Maunder Minimum with reduced sunspot activity and less heating of the Earth) people will begin to suffer from the cold and great numbers will die from exposure. By the end of a year, nine million people from the east coast will be dead.
It sounds incredible, but there are many scientific accounts of what happens to modern societies after an EMP event. The trick is to prevent the event from occuring. I am not convinced that the so-called “leaders” in the US wish to prevent it. In fact, they have plans in place that benefit from such a turn of events. The trillions of dollars spent on underground “continuance of government” plans and facilities, the many private organic farms that produce safe, GMO-free food not for sale to the public, but for the consumption of the Elite Leaders in government, are evidence that they plan to go on in our demise.
I used to think that this could be stopped, but now I realize, after 20 years of warning others, that people can be fatally addicted to their beliefs and completely unwilling to listen to Reason. This intellectual dishonesty which is so pervasive among the progressive leftists prevents them from acknowledging reality. They continue to believe in contradictions and become hostile when presented with facts that expose their fantasies.
This is why America won’t be saved. The many decades of progressive education has already created generations of people unable to perceive an undistorted reality. On a grand scale, civilizations go through cycles of rising and falling. America is in her fourth turning. This is the unpleasant phase of history, and it’s going to suck to be an American living in America when this crap hits the fan next year.
To the American leftists who brought us all to the brink: you’ve earned it. I hope you get every bit of what’s coming. You deserve it.
For everyone else, we should have been more vocal much earlier about the dangers of the New Left.
Good luck to every productive citizen in the world. This is going to be a rough ride. The key to survival is Location, Location, Location. Being as far from the Epicenter of this disaster as possible is a good start. And good luck.
Fact: The western populations are reproducing at a rate below the needed 2.11 offspring per union, required to sustain a culture. North America, 1.6 children per union. Italy, 1.2. Spain, 1.1.
Muslims: 8.1 offspring per union.
At this rate, by 2020, Islam will be the dominant world religion. France will be an Islamic nation. England, Norway and Sweden are not far behind.
Muslims are in the process of “biological jihad”, populating the world and infiltrating every western nation, it’s government and it’s general population. This happens as immigration, and “birth tourism” enable babies born in the US and other nations, such as the UK, to gain citizenship by birth. As the number of Muslims reaches a majority, so will the voting tip in favor of Muslims in government office and finally, the passage of Sharia Law.
Russia’s population of 144 million contains 23 million ethnic Muslims. Plus, Russians of Orthodox background are converting to Islam. Russia had about 300 mosques in 1991 and now there are at least 8,000. Experts predict that by 2010, some 40 percent of Russian military conscripts will be Muslim.
Think about that for a moment. Who controls Russia’s nuclear arsenal? What happens when the decision-makers in Russia are Muslims? If they are true to their Q’uran, they will use the weapons of global annihilation to strike a blow to the infidels in the west. Since they are religious and believe in an afterlife, and firthermore, the belief that they will be rewarded with 72 virgins in that afterlife, there is no rational deterrent to commiting mass suicide through nuclear armageddon.
This raises a serious problem for the free world. How do we stop them from reproducing? How do we prevent them from taking over the military forces of nuclear powers of the world? It doesn’t take a stretch of the imagination to conceive of the possibilities of an Islamic-controlled Russian nuclear arsenal. And it’s not just Russia–Islam is spreading into other nuclear nations around the world. Once the tipping point is reached, and once Muslims are in control of the weapons, they will have but one step left to achieve their thousand years’ long goal of murdering infidels by the millions.
I’m not a big fan of diplomatic talks, but in this case, I think the first line of defence is for all the reasonably rational nations of the world to implore the expulsion of Muslims from within their borders and from their government positions. It sounds harsh, but the alternative leads to a thousand years of Dark Ages.
Islam need issue no terrorism, fight no wars, explode no bombs. It need only wait until, by sheer numbers, it will dominate the world.
For one day, 9/11/2013, we are taking our site down and going dark as a show of support and to bring attention to a very important cause. We suggest you join us, if you are in agreement with the sentiments below:
This much is clear — the NSA isn’t going to stop their crap until and unless the people demand it and start holding government — and the private businesses that make what they do possible — accountable.
What we are doing: Going “Dark” on 9/11/2013.
On 9/11/2013 if you run an Internet site you go dark – disable access for the day.
If you use the Internet you go dark – don’t use the ‘net for the day.
And whatever you were going to buy, whatever you were going to do on 9/11/2013, you do not do on 9/10, 9/12, or at any other time.
Why we are doing it:
We all have the 4th Amendment right to be secure in our papers, effects and lives, including electronic transmissions, until and unless there is a warrant issued detailing a specific alleged offense and identifying the specific items to be searched for or seized. This includes our emails, it includes our phone calls, text messages and the location data generated as a necessity to provide us with mobile services, which we did not consent to be used for any purpose other than providing those services. It includes no “automatic license plate readers” on police cars, light poles and such. This is what The Constitution says; it is not a suggestion.
The Constitution, in fact, does not give us these rights; it explicitly states that they are ours and that the government is forbidden to rip them from us or ride rough-shod over them. But the wonderful people in government agencies (such as the NSA) merely smile and repeat their anti-Constitutional felonies. So, in response to this institutionalized malfeasance, here’s a proposal:
We should all have every single law enforcement officer, who work for us and are paid for by us, have at all times a video and audio recording device on and working while they are on the job and the lack of any said record, any delay in turning over such a record, or any evidence of editing or tapering thereof with said record shall be cause for dismissal with prejudice of any charge brought by or through any act of said person irrespective of any other evidence, with one exception — if the suspect is the one who caused the record to be tampered with or destroyed.

As support in North Dakota grows in favor of abolishing property taxes and making it an amendment to their state constitution, it’s time to push for similar measures in the other 49 states. Supporters of the bill gathered more than 28,000 signatures to put that question on the ballot next June. I can hardly wait until this spreads across the nation, as millions are being made homeless by the hidden property taxes that make for multi-thousand dollar a month mortgage payments.
I must admit to some skepticism here, though.. North Dakota is sitting on a huge oil deposit and jobs in the oil industry are booming right now. Other states don’t have the natural wealth in the ground (or in many cases, that wealth is "owned" by the federal government and locked up. Which brings me to the next interesting topic…
There is No Oil Shortage
The US government statistics show that within the US borders, there are about 1.4 trillion barrels of recoverable oil in the ground. That’s about 250 years’ worth at 7 billion barrels a year — more than all the oil the world has consumed since the first oil well was made operational 150 years ago in Titusville, Pennsylvania.
Federal restrictions on land leasing mean that only 2.2% of the developable oil fields are available to be worked by oil companies. The rest is locked up by federal beaurocratic rules.
Looking at coal supplies, North America has 497 billion short tons of recoverable coal — more than three times that of Russia.
So the energy crisis is government-fabricated. We could be enjoying gasoline at less than fifty cents per gallon if the government would get out of the way and let the offshore drilling be done. We could solve our energy problems, stop the wars and scale back our spending to defense only. Which brings me to the next topic…
War and Banksters: An Unholy Alliance
I’ve been gradually reaching the difficult-to-stomach conclusion that much of the "unsolveable" problems of the world are being created on purpose and that purpose is to enrich the world bankers–uh banksters. It’s quite probable that the situation is hopelessly entrenched and beyond fixing, as was the story in the movie The International. Corruption has set in at every level of government, in every office, save for a few, and throughout the banks and Wall Street. In fact, the corruption is so widespread that the law enforcement arm of the government is broken, thus allowing one ponzi scam after another to operate, bilk its clients and the go bankrupt. The ugly creature is beginning to emerge, open it’s gaping maw to reveal unspeakable horrors now. Government is also running rampant, flagrantly abusing its authority, harassing small businesses, farmers, food co-ops, etc. Things have run amok and it’s so scary, because it’s not a Tom Clancy novel anymore–it’s now the reality. Many stock market players are waking up to the fact that "yesterday’s tinfoil is today’s reality."
So where does that leave us? Revolution? You gotta be kidding. The People, with their pistols and rifles, against Predator Drones, Hellfire missiles, Smart Bombs and who knows what else? There’s no level playing field. A revolution won’t stand a chance. So what can we do?
Wait for it all to collapse. The way the Fed is printing counterfeit fiat paper, it is a mathematical certainty that the whole system will eventually collapse. It won’t be an organized and orderly one, either. The banksters and their henchmen at the Fed will kick the can down the road as far as they can, and when it won’t go any farther, get ready for the most catastrophic collapse the world has ever seen. Remember Black Friday sales? See how people will trample each other to death over a $2 Chinese made waffle iron that will probably be in the dump in 2 months? Now imagine those same people haven’t had anything to eat for three days, the supermarkets are stripped bare of food (because there’s no fuel or money to pay the transportation side of the economy) and the grid goes down and suddenly it’s economic armageddon. Uh-oh. There are something lik 65 million people in America that are on government welfare. When those welfare checks stop, you can bet all hell is going to break loose.
So, with the stage set, we’re waiting for the dominos to fall. The first domino is Greece, then the collapse spreads like wildfire across Europe. The EU is about to dissolve under the stress already. Europe will plunge into chaos and much of the money that was invested there will flee to the US or other safer territory, temporarily, giving the Dollar a short-term boost. But the fire is not out. And the fiscal irresponsibility of the US government will continue to elevate the problems here in the US until our day or reckoning arrives, as it is in Europe. Some say we have maybe 18 months. Others conclude that it may be more like 5 years or longer before it all goes to hell in the US. While we can’t agree on the timing of collapse, we all can agree that it is a matter of when, not of if.
The big question hanging over concerned preppers is what will be the course of action on the part of the government? With recent legislation on the table granting the government the power to indefinately detain Americans on American soil, rumors of half a million plastic coffins at FEMA centers, internment centers next to railways in much of the south and other signs of German Nazi-style prison camps popping up all over the place, one has to wonder if, upon the great crash of the USA economy, whether the military will be deployed to round up US citizens and relocate them all into prison camps or slave labor camps. It sounds absurd, and even five years ago it was unthinkable, but I think the federal government and their power broker henchmen are scared to death of an awakening Sheeple. They are doing everything they can to prepare for mass civil unrest. We know they have the tax-extorted funding to pull it off. The real question is will they use it, or will things deteriorate so fast that enlisted men refuse to report to duty, preferring to bug out with their families to safety on their own? So many questions.
As 2011 comes to a close, the USA sits in the precipice, with no viable pro-American candidates running on either party, and a growing, but microscopic, support for the Libertarian Party. People are getting fed up in the USA, and polls are showing that, but with 51% of the voting public on the welfare roles, the Democratic system is a failure. It will have to collapse, and civil war will kill off 3/4 of the American population, if not first by famine, disease and panic, in the two weeks following the shutdown of the American economy. Get ready, and hope the government doesn’t try to steal what reserves and housing you’ve set aside for yourselves. Good luck, America!
If there is nothing else that you do this week, or for the rest of the month even, the one thing you need to do is watch this 8-part presentation by Tom Baugh. In all the years of reading, listening to, and talking with the perveyors of ideas, especially those that paint a dystopian future for America, this man’s ideas are non-contradictory, well formed and constructive.
There are 8 parts–the above is the entry point. He systematically identifies what ideaology has brought America down, who the bad guys are (not the IRS, not the cops–think Pogo here), how we need to frame the situation and, after it all collapses, how we can rebuild a value-for-value society.
This man is brilliant. There’s no hyperbole, no fat, no ‘conspiracy’ theory. There is just facts, integrated and all the dots connected so you can see just how we got into this mess that we’re in.
For those into disaster, yes, there are plenty of predictions. For those thinking they can run, hide and stash, Tom’s view is congruent with mine: the tax man will taketh your farm and your food stash. So don’t bother. You can’t stash away enough anyway, unless you were rich enough, and if you are rich enough, then you have other options.
Bottom line, see this presentation. It’s clarity of point, precision organization and consistency of ideas will be an ephiphany for you.
Tom Baugh is the author of Starving the Monkeys Fight Back Smarter, which goes into detail about the coming shift in America’s future and what we all can do to hasten the collapse and pick up the pieces while there are still pieces worth saving. His web site is starvingthemonkeys.com
It’s been a while since the last entry, but some real gems have cropped up recently. Here’s one:
John Adams’ political writings and specifically “A Dissertation on the Canon And Feudal Law.” John Adams’ work begins with:
“”Ignorance and inconsideration are the two great causes of ruin of mankind.” This is an observation of Dr. Tillotson, with relation to the interest of his fellow men in a future and immortal state. But it is of equal truth and importance if applied to the happiness of men in society, on this side the grave. In the earliest ages of the world, absolute monarchy seems to have been the universal form of government. Kings, and a few of their great counsellors and captains, exercised a cruel tyranny over the people, who held a rank in scale of intelligence, in those days, but little higher than the camels and elephants that carried them and their engines to war.”
Why would the men that fought against such tyranny over their lives and of land ownership and irrational laws, implement a practice that they just fought a war to get away fromf? My answer is that they would not have and hence why for the first time in recorded history a country was created with a government of laws not of men, that did not rule the people but protected their right to their lifes and hence all the property that they could accumulate through their life’s efforts.
“Any form of property tax or regulation denies the individual’s right to fully control his own property and, therefore, his own life. For this reason, taxation and regulation of property is always wrong- taxation is theft and regulation by initiated force is slavery.” ~Morris and Linda Tannehill, The Market For Liberty (p.54)
In response to my “Feudal Land Title: A Commonlaw Fraud” article, a reader, “Dogma” responded with what I consider to be the typical “best” Marxist argument defending the quashing of property rights in America and in other countries that do not respect no recognize the right to private property.
Let’s begin with his opening remark:
You seem to have developed a victim mentality with an entitlement attitude. You realize you are rationalizing a self-absorbed position in light of facts not in evidence. Your positions have zero basis in reality, they simply serve to help you justify your lot in life, whatever that is.
The reader’s comment starts out with a contradiction: no one but the individual can defend property rights. The government can’t do it, since it’s motivation is to increase the reach of its powers through ever-increasing taxes, regulations and encroachment into individual’s lives. So instead of having unorganized and poorly-funded roving bandits attacking your private property, now you have a single, well-funded, heavily-armed, military or para-military force that is bound by law to take your property, using practically-unlimited resources, funded by mass extortion. You see, in most countries, including America, your Constitutional rights are only recognized (poorly at that) when your taxes are paid. So when you have property taxes, the government grows in power at an alarming rate and is soon out of control and interfering with every aspect of your life. And they have more mite than any roving bandits. And if you kill a “law enforcement” officer who’s about to take your property that you’ve worked your entire life to earn, many more well-funded para-military will be on your property in short order, with orders to murder you. Kill a roving bandit and that would likely be the last you’d be dealing with that particular pack of bandits.
In a moral society, the government’s job is limited to securing individual rights, not subverting them. The current system in America is immoral. What a fine example it is: stealing is how to run a government. Theft is socially acceptable. Even if you have to murder the creator of a certain wealth or value in order to obtain it by force.
In the free market, some people provide services and products. Those that are a real value to other men, prosper–there is no need to point a gun at the consumer and say “buy, or else!” But that’s exactly how the government works. Since few, if any of the “services” it offers are what people with a rational self-interest would want (who want’s their children indoctrinated with Marxist ideaology? Who want’s to be burdened with a thousand different forms and fees just to build a tool shed on one’s own property?) the government, in order to remain in “business” has to seize its income by force, or threat thereof.
You are not entitled to own property to do what you please, without compensating the rest of society [AKA: the government] for the expense of securing YOUR property rights, which are relative. See, in your world you would own some property, and then you would attempt to defend that property from others that wish to take it away by force. This is a battle you would lose. And very quickly. Somebody, or some group would easily over run you, and take your property for themselves. They then would have to defend it from other would-be predators.
To wit, here are two illuminating arguments from fellow Objectivists:
That is an arbitrary assertion defensible in neither political philosophy nor the historical record in America. If someone is opposed to private property rights because he is a collectivist who thinks you owe “compensation to society” in order to live, then the dispute is a lot deeper than the nature of land rights.
Rights are a moral concept. The concept of rights of the individual means a moral sanction of the freedom of action of the individual in a social context. Rights subordinate society to moral law because the individual, not society, is the fundamental unit. Rights do not have to be bought from the collective. That would invert the process. This pertains to all of our rights, not just land rights. Our political rights under law are a recognition and legal formulation of our natural rights as human beings. The whole purpose of the government is to protect our rights as individuals, not dispense them by permission in exchange for extortion payments on behalf of the mob.
Does man not own his effort which he trades for values (or money) which can then be traded for another value(s), land? Whether people recognize it or not a moral government is created by the people to protect their individual rights (the right to take action) and all the values they accumulate from that action which includes land/property. In other words a moral government outlaws force and only takes action against those that use or state they will use force against others. So, the government (and it’s citizens that agree) that act to take one’s property/land are acting in an immoral manner when they take someone’s land for non-defense based reasons. …
A right is a moral concept that subordinates the will of the majority to the rights of the individual within a social context. And to protect those rights man creates a government which does so by creating laws to protect man’s right to take action and accumulate values (to include land). Once again whether people recognize it or not, the U.S. Constitution was created to defend man’s rights (which comes from his very nature of being a man) not to give him rights nor limit his rights. In other words the U.S. Constitution was created to limit the power of the government so that it’s sole purpose would be to outlaw any usage of immoral force.
Man, by his very nature has the right to take all the actions required to sustain his life. And any man that takes the action(s) to produce an effort, but does not own his effort’s reward(s) is just a slave. In other words, man does not need a government to tell him what actions to take to sustain his life, but he does need a government to protect him from those that want to enslave his actions (and hence any property that is earned from those actions) to their whimsical desires. …
The Founding Fathers were fighting against a feudal or nonsovereign land ownership because they recognized that man has a right to the property (all property) that he has earned or been given. And once man has earned the property (or it has been given by someone that has earned it) he has the right to keep, use or dispose of the property as he sees fit.
That is anarchy, where almost everyone dies a violent death, or is actually enslaved. That is the logical and absolute progression of your argument. That is what you want.
This reader has a malevolent view of mankind. He seems to believe that man is inherently evil, and that he will go about murdering everyone in sight, just to satisfy his lust for conquest.
No, this is not anarchy. This is moral and proper to man, to live in a free society, where individual rights are priority number one, and anyone can do what they please, at their own expense, so long as their actions do not harm others.
The rest of us want a manageable society where our children aren’t hunters or the hunted. This requires some sacrifice. SOME sacrifice. So we collectively agree to form a “government”. It is not some monarchy or brutal dictatorship, because by definition if it were, we would not be allowed to discuss this publicly or privately. We, the people, have agreed to hire and employ persons to provide enforcement of the laws we agree on. One of the many laws is indeed enforcement of property rights. So indeed one can own a home/property WITHOUT immediately being slain by some more powerful entity out to take the property.
There is a cost for this. It’s called taxes. So the deal is, for some cost (variable by state), the majority of citizens have agreed to pay some monetary fee into the collective we call the government. Part of what our government employees do is enforce the laws. We also put some penalty into the laws. If someone attempts to take your property by force, they are subject to losing their personal freedom. Also, if someone doesn’t pay their share of taxes, they to are at risk of penalty. Otherwise, many people, such as yourself, wouldn’t pay taxes, yet would want the protection of the law. In other words, these people would want something for nothing.
All Socialism leads to Marxism, which leads to Communism. Look at how our freedoms have eroded in America, at an exponentially-increasing rate in these last few decades. There can be no civility in a nation where the government is run by stealing. It sets one fine example for others to follow. A nation of thieves, starting with the government and working its way through to the inhabitants. Eventually all citizens of this type of government become the Hunted, and the government becomes the ultimate Predator.
If the government offered something we valued, we would gladly pay for it. The fact that the money has to be extorted is a clear sign that something is terribly wrong with what the government is “selling”.
We are not ENTITLED to these protections without some sacrifice. You are not a victim of the “evil government”. You have nobody to blame but yourself. You are a victim of yourself. You deserve what you get. Sorry.
I know I am sounding harsh, but I too thought like you for 20+ years. I too lost a property because I couldn’t afford both the payment on the property and the taxes on the property. I too blamed everyone else but myself. I lied to myself, I knew the rules before I committed to the binding contract. Property taxes, and the potential that they could rise were not hidden at all. I chose to ignore those cost because I felt I was entitled, I was owed the lifestyle I wanted … not the lifestyle I earned and thus deserved.
After the Sheriff physically removed me from “my house”, I realized that I had the equation all wrong. I too thought I was forced to, as you say, “make an un-coerced choice as to whether we want to participate in the Socialist income-redistribution system or not.” I could have “chosen” to move to another State, or even another country. I could have chosen to continue to bitch and moan about how “the man” is keeping me down.
What I realized was that I COULDN’T AFFORD the lifestyle I wanted (which INCLUDED paying the taxes that enforced property rights), therefore I DIDN’T DESERVE it. In order for me to afford what i wanted, I was going to have to devise and execute a plan that would allow me to earn more, therefore I could pay more, and AFFORD it.
Hopefully one day soon, you to will come to that same conclusion.
Been there, done that. I empathize with your pain. Really, I do. The first time I was removed from my property, I was too ignorant to stand up and say, “Hey! This is stealing!” It was a sewer assessment that put me into foreclosure. I had 30 days to come up with a year’s salary to pay it. Plus the town condemned my septic and well, which were only four years old. I spent the next 44 years recovering, financially, from that devastation. The next time it happens, the uniformed men will be dealing with a man with “nothing left to lose.” Beware!
In America, we were founded on the ideal of the pursuit of happiness. There is nothing in the Constitution that requires us to slave at jobs to pay a randsom just to be left alone (and even then we are frequently invaded, threatened and dislocated for other government demands). To pursue happiness, doing what we please, even if it means raising a garden and living off the land and not partaking in the IRS’ game of social security numbers and fiat money commerce. Since the only way to legally avoid paying income taxes is not to have any income, a homeowner is stuck with an inability to protest or “vote with his wallet” against the federal government.
This is America, a nation founded on the principal that no man should be forced to move somewhere else, to enjoy the lifestyle of his choosing. And no one should be forced to move, just because of government greed. You see, you’re property is YOURS, if you earned it and properly compensated the previous owner. You owe no other party anything. Society has no claim on your private property, nor on your person, as long as your use of your property does not put another’s in harm’s way.
Freedom means that no man is a slave to any other, or to any society. Property taxes are, in essense, the most quintessential form of slavery there is.
