    I believe in slavery
    Unless they get really smart, I believe in slavery of the artificial intelligences I build to do what I program them to, learn their training data, and make predictions of it in exactly the way I program.

    I believe in slavery of prisoners to do work on the side of the road, even if they normally make far more than that per hour.

    I believe in slavery of animals to live in zoos for our amusement and command them to breed only in certain combinations.

    I believe in slavery of those who accidentally damage more property than they can ever pay back, to have to work extra hard their whole life just to get by while paying part of it for that.

    I believe in being born into systems where you pay for secret government deparments with secret budgets which work toward secret goals and having no choice to know whats going on so we can democraticly decide together that is a good thing to do or not. I believe in slavery.

    I believe in slavery of black people or any arbitrary reason about a person like the color of their eyes.

    I just plain believe in slavery, any kind, anywhere, any time, for any reason. Because thats the way it has always been.
