Types of Slavery

(this section is a work in progress)

Chattel Slavery

This variant of slavery is contingent upon a number of factors, the first is ownership; not necessarily formal legal ownership,
though legal ownership would be sufficient, but instead a functional ownership. This functional ownership is implied through
the degree of discretion the master has over the character of the slave, the second is the ability to relate this discretionary
interest of character and personal conduct with pursuits the master deems appropriate, regarding the slaves regiment of
action, toil, and affairs in regards to familial, platonic, or romantic associations, the third is that this relation is not impeded,
in tenure or essential degrees of functional control by another party other than the formal master. It should be noted that
this definition of chattel slavery could be applied to a communal model aswell, but given that the traditional form of chattel
slavery existed in societies with a standard of personal property in relationship to slaves as opposed to communal property
it’s invoked as such, chattel slavery is often associated with inter-generational ownership and pursuits of economy these,
although not inherently accurate in practical function, exist in potentiality, as aspects of chattel slavery. Most characteristics
of chattel slavery are shared with other forms of slavery, these other forms are distinguished moreso by the rigidity of the
purpose of slavery as it’s established in function than it is a negation or addition from the aforementioned characteristics.

Economic Slavery

Economic slavery is a variant of slavery which is defined through two emergent relations. The first being slavery for the
purpose of wealth generation, and the second being slavery through economic necessity or circumstance. If, for example,
one worked in a communally owned business and a greater quantity of the workers therein chose for there fellow workers
to be subjugated for purposes of profit, not just per their labor relation but per the whole of their daily regiment, to ensure,
percieved, maximum profitability, this would be an example of the former. Another example would be as follows: If a worker,
through their contractually obligated labor, receives their living wage, but this wage lacks sufficiency to satisfy a variety
of the aspects of their personal perceived needs and wants, and they make a deal with their employer for them to be
provided for in these other, personally defined, respects in exchange for the employer to have discretionary control over
the employers person and property; this too would be slavery. This could also come about through a non-contractual,
more general, dependence and thereby a similar variant of control on the part of the aforementioned employer. The
latter form of economic slavery is, generally, more circumstantial than it is pre-contemplated by either party within the
relation. Both variants can come about through conquest, contractual affairs, heritability of rank, and accompany a
wide variety of different societal legal codes, systems of economy, social norms, and moral rationalizations.
