Slavery, or Liberty?

In the ongoing march toward Socialism that we are engaged in, one thing has become clear to me. That is:

People are much more willing to accept a Slave Master than to achieve Self Mastery.

A chained and beaten slave at least has his basic needs met, so long as he is willing to let another lay claim to the output of his labor. Funny how the organizations pushing enslavement the hardest are the same ones who would decry it, if it went by its true name instead of being disguised as "Hope-n-Change" from a Socialist Utopian dream.

Samuel Adams said it best:

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

May your chains rest lightly upon you...

As for me, I choose Liberty.

we're headed towards slavery

problem is, slavery kind of requires a master that makes the slaves work.

I'm wondering how they will try to make us work, I think I already know who plans to be Master.
