We accept slavery because the alternative is poverty, death, or imprisonment - all of which are giant decreases in the amount of freedom.
What would you have us do?
"As long as you do not bring harm to another individual or their property, no other human on this earth can tell you what to do. Every penny you earn or inherit belongs to you. No other human on this earth has a right to anything of yours unless you give it voluntarily. No human on this earth has a right to use force on you."
Anyone can tell you what to do if they have the power to back up their coercions. Without (or with) a government, the only man with a gun can tell you what to do. A gang has more power than you and can tell you what to do. Consider that rights do not exist in the natural state. The natural state is the survival of the fittest. The fittest has the ability - not the right - to take what he/she pleases.
“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.”
