One property of the slave mentality is overlooked: service for money. If a person is ready to serve only for money, without thinking about the moral side of the matter, he is a slave even if he has freedom of movement and private property, because he is ready to serve his master like a dog for a bone

If someone has the choice to move, serve or can own property, they are not a slave.

Just because someone chooses to do things you think are immoral, to earn money, they are not a slave.

Slaves obey not only violence, they count on the fact that they have a strong master who organizes them. Service is also slavery. It cannot be said that slaves have no property at all: they have shelter and food. The manager can also be a slave.

In general, a slave differs from a Free in that a slave obeys the master, is controlled by a carrot or a stick, a free one serves only the Rightness

Workers sell their time for money

It does not make them a slave

Nice sentiment. But inaccurate.

At least in a capitalist society, people work in order to earn money for food, shelter and transportation. They can leave their job for a better one at any time.

The ability to quit a job shows they are not slaves.
