Re: the story of your enslavement

I was fixed on it from start to finish. But it makes it sound easier to be free than it is especially if your the only one or one of very few. then you become the farmer.....

Re: the story of your enslavement

Show me a farmer who allows his fields to be full of unproductive animals????

Then look at the all the people we have on benefits

TBH I wish things were a little more "farm like" then only those who work would eat, excepting those who genuinely cannot work of cause.

Re: the story of your enslavement

My thought, see the farm and leave the farm? What after, no health service, no tax, no rubbish pickup. Etc etc etc.

Need the farm to live.

Do agree with big governments fall and small one rise quickly.

Re: the story of your enslavement

I like living on a farm where I have respect for the farmer who has built up the farm from scratch and knows all about how to run a productive farm.

What I don't like is living on a farm where the farmer has no prior experience in farming, has no idea how to run a farm and has no real interest in learning anything about farming. The only reason he is a farmer is because he went to the right school and the only reason he carries on farming is to keep the troughs of the farm hands full to the brim at the expense of the well being of all his livestock.

I used to work on a farm and my trough was never full. The farmers was over flowing.....
