Voluntary Slavery

Fellow liberty lovers,

I’m curious what your thoughts are on this highly controversial topic of
voluntary slavery. Yes, voluntary slavery. Someone chooses of their own
free will to become someone else’s slave, for any number of reasons outside
of coercion. Should that be allowed in a free society (regardless of
whether there is a gov)? Is that even a ridiculous question to ask? Fire
away!

This Wikipedia article might get the mental gears turning:

Libertarian writers on this topic include Murray Rothbard, Walter Block,
Hans Herman Hoppe, Stephan Kinsella, Thomas L Knapp, and many others. I
look forward to the discussion.

Best,
Richard

Voluntary slaveryhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voluntary_slavery

Voluntary slavery, in theory, is the condition of slavery entered into at a point of voluntary consent. It is distinguished from involuntary slavery where an individual is forced to a period of servitude usually as punishment for a crime. In practice, however, the term is often a euphemism used to hide conditions of slavery which are, in fact, less than completely voluntary.

I support voluntary slavery. I’m a voluntaryist.
