Cannibals All!: Or, Slaves Without Masters
A. Morris, 1857 - 379 halaman
Southern intellectual George Fitzhugh provides a passionate defense of slavery in this nearly 400-page volume published in 1857. Further developing ideas in his previous work Sociology for the South, Fitzhugh not only defends slavery but attacks the entire liberal tradition. Attacking Adam Smith, John Locke, Thomas Jefferson and others, Fitzhugh argues that free markets are harmful to society by forcing the lower classes into crushing labor and poverty. The answer, Fitzhugh argues, is slavery--not only for blacks, but for whites as well. "Slavery," he writes, "is a form, and the very best form, of socialism."

The duty of protecting the weak involves the necessity of enslaving them - hence , in all countries , women and children , wards and apprentices , have been essentially slaves , controlled , not by law , but by the will of a superior .
Would that gentleman lay his capital out in land and negroes , he might be sure , in whatever hands it came , that it would be employed to protect laborers , not to oppress them ; for when slaves are worth near a thousand dollars a head ...
Slaves , with more of actual practical liberty , with ampler allowance , and constant protection , are secure in the enjoyment of all the rights , which provide for their physical comfort at all times and under all circumstances .

Insightful commentary into the meaning of labor and its relation to capital. Fitzhugh proves himself a more than capable defender of the antebellum South while offering a damning critique of values we now take for granted in the modern world. Baca ulasan lengkap

i love this. it's a primary source in its own right for the antebellum period, but still is meaningful today for those of us trapped in the corporate culture we inherited after the industrial revolution. a fresh perspective on work and society. Baca ulasan lengkap
