OK. I like your article. Thank you for taking the time to write it.

About midway through it gets a little unfocused. The sentence

"Historically, the right to vote and have a say in government was restricted to those who owned property; that’s why slaves are slaves."

doesn't do much for me. Connecting voting to slavery? I think slavery is more aptly connected with the refusal to have labor extracted. Here are a couple related quotes for you to think about:

"100,000 Englishmen simply cannot control 350 million Indians, if those Indians refuse to cooperate." ---Ghandi

"Slavery was not eliminated in America or Europe, slavery can only be eliminated in the mind of the slave and in the mind of the master. Those are its strongholds."

Slavery is an exceedingly important matter to understand and on which not to get confused or confuse others. Above all, it is our responsibility to take control of our labor and direct it toward worthy ends. We can not rely on government to do that for us, nor can it stop us from doing it.
