Documentary – On Modern Servitude (2009) by Jean-François Brient

Modern servitude is voluntary, consented to by the mass of slaves who trudge along the face of the Earth. They themselves buy the commodities that enslave them every day more. Slaves procure alienating jobs that are bestowed upon the tamed. They, themselves, choose the masters whom they will obey. For this absurd tragedy to play-out, it has been necessary to breed in them the ignorance of their own exploitation and alienation. Behold the bizarre modernity of our time. As with the slaves of antiquity, serfs of the Middle Ages or the working-class of the first industrial revolutions, today we bear witness to an emerging class of the totally enslaved. The difference being that they don’t know it or better yet choose to ignore it. They fail to recognize the one weapon available to the enslaved: rebellion. Slaves accept without question the pitiful life that was manufactured on their behalf. Apathy and resignation are the sources of their misfortune. (Source)

    Yes I agree we are all slaves to the system we all know it but refuse to accept it.
    What fools we are.

    It really looks like a matrix,but even with movies like the matrix people do not grasp it!

    Excellent enslavement perspective, especially for those that still wish to not believe it.

    But the solution presented is equally revolting. Anarchy and more violence is not the solution!

    Feel the Occupy movements have done a much more effective job than what this film advocates, which is more hatred.

      Anarchism is not violence, this is a common trope… Violence is current social and political reality… Anarchism is a systme of governance that can be based on mutual aid..
