Enslaved peoples do nothing buts boast of the peace and tranquillity they enjoy in their chains and they give the name 'peace' to the most miserable slavery.
Gist of Idea
Enslaved peoples often boast of their condition, calling it a state of 'peace'
Jean-Jacques Rousseau (Discourse on the Origin of Inequality , Part II)
It seems to be a sad truth that enslaved peoples are less upset about their condition than outside observers are, especially in modern times, where slavery is usually deemed unacceptable. Slavery might be the best you can hope for.
