Don't Be Scared to Say "Save it with the 'Slave' Shit!"

“He who is yoked to sin is enslaved”-Hebrew scripture

One of the most potent words to use to evoke anger and fear in people is SLAVE.  It is used relentlessly in propaganda against political philosophies when we are told the other party is trying to 'enslave' us citizens, or humans with melaninated skin are reminded of a dark past as 'slaves' of their neighbors under the guise of history lessons.  

slave (n.) late 13c., "person who is the property of another," from Old French esclave (13c.), from Medieval Latin Sclavus "slave" (cf. Italian schiavo, 

The only way to get past a fear that holds you back is to understand it and embrace it if necessary, but at the least know what and why it evokes the response in you that it does! There are many words that 'trigger' FEAR responses in each of us based on both individual and collective experiences, however attempts to censor or otherwise ban these words only increases their FEAR factor and gives the control of the word to those attempting to suppress it....

But I would not have you be ignorant for knowledge is freedom from FEAR!

The word SLAVE that noone seems to want to be called today was originally "Slav" , so called because of the many Slavs sold into slavery by conquering peoples.

"This sense development arose in the consequence of the wars waged by Otto the Great and his successors against the Slavs, a great number of whom they took captive and sold into slavery." [Klein]

Who are the Slavs? Over half of Europe's territory is inhabited by Slavic-speaking communities. The worldwide population of people of Slavic descent is close to 350 million...Modern nations and ethnic groups called by the ethnonym Slavs are Present-day Slavic people are classified into East Slavic (chiefly Russians, Ukrainians, and Belarusians), West Slavic (chiefly Poles, Czechs, Slovaks, and Wends, or Sorbs), and South Slavic (chiefly Serbs, Croats, Bosnians, Slovenes, Macedonians, Montenegrins and Bulgarians)...ALL WHITE PEOPLE!

The word slav is related to slovo "word, speech," which suggests the name originally meant member of a speech community (cf. Old Church Slavonic Nemici "Germans," related to nemu "dumb;" and cf. Old English þeode, which meant both "race" and "language"). 

Identical with the -slav in personal names (e.g. Russian Miroslav, literally "peaceful fame;" Mstislav "vengeful fame;" Jaroslav "famed for fury;" Czech Bohuslav "God's glory;" and cf. Wenceslas). Spelled Slave c.1788-1866....

More common Old English words for slave were þeow (related to þeowian "to serve") and þræl (see thrall) in PEON... and PAWN from Anglo-French poun, Old French PEON, earlier pehon, from Medieval Latin pedonem "foot soldier," from Late Latin pedonem (nominative pedo) "one going on foot," from Latin pes (genitive pedis) "FOOT"

The Slavic words for "slave" (Russian rab, Serbo-Croatian rob, Old Church Slavonic rabu) are from Old Slavic *orbu, from the PIE root *orbh- (also source of ORPHAN) the ground sense of which seems to be "thing that changes allegiance" (in the case of the slave, from himself to his master). The Slavic word is also the source of ROBOT. 

So the lesson is that the real SLAVES say don't be another man's ROBOT! Being a PEON in another man's business and a PAWN in another man's game should be much more fearful than being called a SLAVE!
