You can look at slavery sideways, and realize we often work for nothing in return.
Women Request I Become Their Slave
I am from the USA, I have visited many countries, and here I am an American traveling in Africa. Yes, I feel a little guilty for slavery, but ever since the first time I came to here, I have been thinking. Maybe it was not difficult to make blacks slaves? Actually, I believe putting a carrot out in front of people, with hope, and even status, and you can enslave them easily.
Hunter Gatherer Enslaved Easily
When the Europeans arrive here on this continent, for the most part it was a Hunter-gatherer culture. This is day to day living, stop one day, and there is no food, farming is ten times better than that lifestyle. Europe were already agricultural, and even stored food, therefore they had stable food supplies. They came to this continent, and offered people steady food, something only the Chief enjoyed. When a person is offered stable food, one would do about anything in return, even become their indentured servant.
And, then they went to America and worked on a farm, again, they were able to stop with the hunting and gathering, the cessation of day to day, hand to mouth living.
It is kind of like being a cow, and I admit I am an Animal, and yes, I am comparing humans to cows.
The promise of a good life is offered to me by women, they offer family, food, cooking, and to wash my clothes, and of course the love making stuff. In return, I am supposed to grant the woman 10-100 times more value. I am male, I am Andy Graham, and for sure the male sex is stupid as a brick, but here on this continent, in a more raw culture it become obvious I am stupid.
The offer is blunt, no masking of intentions, the deal seems rather blunt, and only good for the girl. Well, the women here flirt, want a gift, small money, and feel absolutely no remorse in making me work for free, give, and they take. And, guess what, I give, what is up with that?
Something for nothing, I am willing to give.
I think that is the definition of a slave.
Andy Graham in Kara, Togo, West Africa
Pretty much right on Andy. I made a few mistakes in marriage but I (think?) I finally learned by them.
Basically man wants what you said, wash clothes, make dinner, have sex (which is one of man's big downfalls),
if your willing to share a woman and be very careful, then paying directly for it in the long run can save you a
vast amount of money. What your wife wants, expects, etc, kids and education, etc, in laws, etc, goes on and on.
Either that or get to the nitty gritty of what you think shoukld happen in a marriage by hhaveing some in depth
conversations, a solid prenup (which should cover divorce at a later date, preferably all in your favor)before
you get married. I realize that this will bring a lot of LOL, oh well the idea is good, it's the process that generally
will not work.
One of the worst mistakes I made twice previous is I married women who were very smart, now I have one that is intelligent but not as much as I think I am and plus we did have conversations and a prenup.
Anyway I have, I hope covered all my bases with what will be my last marriage with a good lady. If not, part of
what I have covered is the "goodbye dear, you're going back to China" and I will stay single until I die.
Or, everybody is LOL at me including myself. Honest laughter is a graet cure all.
