Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
It's a shame that many look back fondly at the Clinton years because we weren't technically at war but completely disregard the horrible genocides that occurred throughout the world. The fact that hundreds of thousands were slaughtered with machetes in Rhawanda while we debated the definition of "genocide" is hard to defend.
Most people I know think the world was a more peaceful place in the 90s and full of war ever since but the numbers prove them wrong. War related deaths by year since 2000 are estimated to be less that half that of the 90s. It can be debated that our more aggressive involvement in these conflicts has saved millions of lives. I'm not claiming that but I think many peoples perspective on these matters are skewed.
Can you explain why this is forced slavery? It seems to me you have the choice whether to feed your money to those you choose in most cases. Are you a slave to the liberal ideology that states that the government is the only answer? You vote with every dollar you choose to spend.
You don't need to give your money to Apple who was well known for excessive profit margins and was run by a greedy CEO who didn't believe in charity. Or a company like Starbucks that strives to put every independent coffee house out of business.
Find those small local companies and service providers that keep your money out of those that you think are enslaving you. Don't play this lazy game of villianizing the wealthy and be gullible enough to think the more government is the only answer. Give off your butt and work within the current system.
