How to deceive us: slavery and the modern man

In search of different patterns, I came across a very interesting line of reasoning. It happened by chance one day, as it is in itself in a conversation with my best friend. And this line of reasoning concerns our "capitalist society." Society, which is based on private property.

 How to deceive us: slavery and the modern man

So bring a number of formulations from Wikipedia to make it clear on what will build further logical reasoning.

Term 1. Slavery.
Slavery — historically a system of social order where the person (office) is the property of another (master, slave, master) or the state. Before taking captives as slaves, criminals and debtors later and civilians who were forced to work for his master.

Term 2. Feudalism.
Feudalism (from Lat. Feudum — flax, feudal tenure) — socio-political structure, characterized by the presence of two social classes — feudal lords (landowners) and commoners (peasants), holding on to the subordinate lords, nobles connected with each other specific type of legal obligations, known as the feudal ladder. The basis of feudalism is the feudal ownership of land.

Term 3. Capitalism.
Capitalism — the economic system of production and distribution, based on private property, a universal legal equality and freedom of enterprise. The main criterion for economic decision-making is the desire to increase the capital to make a profit.

So … I'll start …
As we are told in various clever textbooks, educational institutions, the media and other places … and our 'smart' policies, it happened like this:
First it was slavery, then it was replaced by a more developed structure of feudalism, feudalism and then when it reached its peak evolved into capitalism. So the question is …

But what really changed in these transitions? What distinguishes slavery, feudalism and capitalism, and that developing all these thousands of years? Here are those questions and I will try to give answers.

As can be seen from the definition of the term "slavery" resulting model is obtained as follows:
There is a slave owner and a slave. Slaveholder has over a slave to absolute power. Slaveholder also makes a slave to work for themselves and generate slave labor income, however, the slave could work long and bring a lot of profit slaveholder had to take care of him: to feed, provide medical care and so on. Servant in turn with kakogoto fright was the property of the slaveholder and had to give his life for the sake of the owner. And it is good but when the number of slaves to follow them was difficult, plague and others could bring great harm slaveholders. Also slave owners had to take care of his security, and protection also came out of the slaves, and used to guard and rebel and kill their own masters. So a slave had the following problems with the slaves:
1. Housing.
2. Provision of food and water.
3. Providing protection.
4. Provision of medical care.
5. Possible riots.

And not surprisingly, feudalism solved some of these problems. As seen slavery just changed ownership, but rather its ability to expand and uneducated people still could not figure out that slavery is not gone anywhere. Easy transition to feudalism slaveholder did not have to give shelter to slaves, they built it on its territory, as the slave owner did not have to provide food and water, as people themselves were grown (hunting) in general to get food to feed and then there were taxes. A tax is a cream that is removed from the slave owner of his slaves. Net income so to speak. But feudalism solved only 2 problems out of 5.

And feudal thinking. Kazhe solve all these problems? Then came a brilliant idea: "Why not make themselves slaves to do everything in such a way that they themselves would want to work and make a profit instead of a stick" And this idea came to life in the form of capitalism. In capitalism governs all kind of "capital", but the cream is removed all the same slave owners (they have not changed), and all the leftovers from their table was with great appreciation the so-called middle class.

What problems solves capitalism?
Solves the problem with housing. Slave now he should get a place to live, and not someone to give him.

Resolves an issue with food and water. Will you work to be a means of livelihood, will not will not.
Solves the problem with the defense. Slaves to protect themselves from each other, and not someone centrally. All the armies of servants are employed, and are ready for the "capital" to give his life. This is akin to belief in God, but now "capital" of the world's god.
Solves the problem of medical care. Themselves are slaves of the "capital" are ready to treat the other slaves, but rather cook for their illnesses. Because The more serious disease so whichever greater cream will slaveholder and the more scraps from his table to fall.

Resolves an issue with riots. Slaves are so busy obtaining food, shelter, medical care, protection and other riots that just ostaletsya time.
And most importantly, he solves the problem of slave labor, this time to skim at all to do nothing. Cream themselves serve.

This is why capitalism is the ideal stepping stone in the evolution. He solved all problems of slaveholders, they can now only remove the cream and Baldev kick and nest itself works without them.

But it is important to understand that until now have remained tezhe most slaveholders and same most slaves. I and most of those who read this article, too, are slaves, that we eat other people's leftovers. That is, we serve the cream on the table slave owners. And hurt by the fact that most people do not understand. Few people realize that he is a pawn or vsegolish ant is crushed. But all chutli not unanimous howl that capitalism is damn power, it is the best system of resource allocation. Class. The best. When everything goes better slave owner and those who produce only the best scraps from his table. It is in your opinion the best?

Although, I do not want to prove anything. Thus we see what is behind the curtain of capitalism. We can change and not just can, but we need to change to a different model of resource allocation. All get what they deserve, not scraps.

We lived in a great free country, but we were told that we are slaves! Now we are miserable slaves of international capital, and we are told that we are free as never before!
