The Cheapest of Slaves

A slave of irons is cheaper than the work of one’s hands.
A slave of land(serf) is cheaper than a slave of irons.
A slave of tax is cheaper than a slave of land.
A slave of credit is cheaper than a slave of tax
A slave of faith is the cheapest of all.
He pays interest on his credit
He pays taxes in his production
He pays for his land
He pays for himself.
He costs nothing but false promises;
But to bait him into slavery with false promises he must seek relief from an oppressor, and returns he can never quite grasp:
Freedom from scarcity, freedom from inequality, freedom from a nature all but hostile to his existence.
