Mandatory Volunteerism

In a recent post concerning the subject of slavery, Frit noted that the present incumbent of the White House might well be ironically instrumental in reintroducing it. Nowadays it’s called “mandatory volunteerism”. The difference between mandatory volunteerism and old style American slavery is that, under mandatory volunteerism, whites and blacks both get to pick the cotton for nothing side by side. Then, in the evenings, both get to serve together in the Ku Klux Klan.
