Can I assume you do not employ people? Then are you yourself a wage slave?

: SDF: Is that how virtue is defined these days? The creation of wage slaves?

That is such a dopey term. Nobody is a slave, except those who think of themselves as slaves. Supposing a person is perfectly content with working a 9 to 5 job and meets all his obligations? He goes to work, comes home, turns on the boob tube and drinks a 6 pack. He's not interested in amassing a fortune. He's content. Doesn't care about Marx or Smith. Is he a wage slave, or is he your typical blue-collar worker?
