WE ALL ARE THE SLAVES

As soon as you read the title, it will pinch your eyes but it is a fact.If we are not the master of ourselves and always need the other persons or servants, it means your servants are not your slaves but you are a slave because without the servants you can not do anything but the servants are self-dependent. If you think deeply, you will find that your thinking is wrong. ONLY THAT PERSON IS MASTER OF HIMSELF WHO DOES NOT NEED ANYONE ELSE OR DOES NOT DEPEND ON OTHERS. EVEN A KING IS A BEGGAR WHO DEPENDS FOR HIS BREAD ON THE SUBJECTS. HE NEVER EARNS HIS BREAD, INSTEAD OF IT HE DEPENDS ON THE TAXES OF THE POOR PEOPLE.In my opinion he is the unnamed king who ploughs the field and grows food and not only for himself but for the whole country and feeds them.

Living in society, we have to rely on others everyday, but it is not slavery, it is a social contract. We are happy to have health insurances when we have to go in a hospital, happy to find policemen and firemen when we need them, the one who grows food is happy to sell a part of it to buy something else that he needs, etc. Only a few wild animals living alone do not depend on others.

I am a government servant.May I deny it?.The facts can not be changed by denial.Why do we feel shy in accepting the obvious facts.There are two types of persons in the world first who are ruled and second who rule, The masters and the servants. It has come down from the past.Who does not know how to rule is ruled.If you are following the crowd, it means you are a part of the crowd, believe or not. Thanks a lot for a sensible response.

@sunilmishra7756 Your opinion is interesting, but I think it is a bit more complex. We are all more or less involved in a master/servant relationship. Who rules ? Who is ruled ? If you read Master and Man by Tolstoy, you will see that there are times where the master becomes the servant and the servant the master. To work effectively the society needs everybody. The one you described that does not need anyone else is the ruler of a unique servant : himself.

@topffer Thank you very much for an intelligent response.Ordinarily we all are masters and servants at a time at home because at home I sweep the floor, wash my clothes and polish my shoes but willingly.But out of home we never do such things in our office.If we change our attitude, the world will be changed but the boss in the office or a master of companies and factories orders us to do the work immediately with rudeness and strictly and he himself keeps sitting like a lord. The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer day by day. The children of the rich go to study in costly schools and they are taught how to rule the poor. if it is a system then why are poor always crushed. Their salary is also very low comparatively. From the times of kings it has come down.Even one king had more than one thousand setvants. Only the names are changed but not the work and humiliation.

Mastery and slavery is the state of mind no matter what you do, where you live. The lion will not eat grass he will die instead. I agree with Topffer in the way that no one in this world is absolutely independent but this does make him lesser species. It is trading between two. I know a monk in Buddha who when extended his hand to beg looked more royal than the presenter.
