Servitude is defined as "the state of being a slave or completely subject to someone more powerful."
- "Besides being able to borrow on personal security, an individual might sell himself or a family member into slavery."
Code of Hammurabi
Jean-Jacques Rousseau believed that in a contract of self-enslavement the slave essentially loses all since the slave no longer has his status as a moral agent capable of enforcing a contract of debt owed to him by his master.
The Paternalism of the corporate state may limit the liberty of the persons bound in membership by social compact or debt. Paternalism is an ancient concept used to justify the legitimacy of slavery and even the subjugation of whole nations under the power of the state. We see this in the systems of the Conscripted fathers, Patronus of Rome who called themselves Benefactors and became the Pater Patriae through the offer of benefits. These are the [[Fathers of the earth]] spoken of by Jesus.
- "When an individual becomes utterly dependent on another person or group to provide all of their emotional, spiritual and physical needs, that individual has given away all of their power. They are allowing another person or persons the ability to pull the proverbial rug out from under them at any given moment. It is a form of slavery, plain and simple." ~ Brent Parrish
- "This abomination must have an end, and there is a superior bench reserved in heaven for those who hasten it." ~ Thomas Jefferson
