Punk, I'm really dissociated, so I'm answering using not too much information.

I don't mean to ignore anything.  Can you help me see them more

Thanks for reducing how much I insult you.  Based on the small set of
things I know, the things you say can at times seem contradictory or
nonrelevant, to me, because I don't know what you know.

I doesn't generally sound to me like you mean what you say.  To so
much degree that to make your words make sense in my reality, I often
have to make things up.  I'm sure my words sound like propaganda, to
you, but the opposite is true for me.

Maybe this doesn't happen where you're from, I don't know.  It's
something I see extensive record of, over here.  What I mean is that
there is real human trafficking (even if you personally believe it
ended many decades ago), where people are actually enslaved.

There are many solutions to every problem.

The most effective ones involve considering the tools we already have
as well as other tools.

I'm down for an abolition-of-government solution to human trafficking,
which is obviously just a much more personal and violent form of
'governance'.  We'd have to make sure to prevent slavery, in the

Oh, you don't like this.  That's okay, suffering is no fun.  Nobody
likes suffering.  I like it, now!  It's the only thing that makes
sense.  But it's very hard to repeat accurately.  It's good to make
sure you're _actually_ on a blockchain, when you do this.  But it's
probably effective to post to the list, so long as you protect the
list for a few decades and can handle the repercussions.

Anyway it looks like the various networks of government and corporate
controlled mafia groups have various codes of silence ("rule #1: don't
talk about fight club").  They're basically the same thing under
different names.  The silence keeps them in conflict with each other,
to prevent discovery of them being orchestrated together and rising

We're saying the same thing, arguing about which part to focus on.
Maybe I can start telling the part of the story you're focusing on.
It sounds like you want to equate the slaver mafia with the united

Splitting hairs.  They mean the forms that happen to be that, under
the belief such things exist, which is well documented.  Procuring
means getting ownership of.

The united nations is one of many, many organizations that produces
information on human trafficking.  Here is their 2020 report:
.  It describes sexual slavery as around half the documented human

I don't know whether prostitution provides for more avenues of
information flow to people not involved, than other activities where
you could possibly be enslaved to do the activity.

Punk-BatSoup-Stasi 2.0 is speaking a language that is clear for
anybody free enough to attend to its details.  I'm guessing that they
are saying they desperately need help.

I found some of it.  You don't trust the law because Lincoln wasn't
really that strong on Freedom, even though they signed it in?

You also quoted that slavery is only legal in the united states as
punishment for a crime the victim has been duly convicted of.  You
should know that slaves are often pardoned for any crimes they were
forced to engage in, whether by control or in order to survive.  You'd
want an advocate to help this be true.

I googled this and it seems to mostly be discussed in texas on google.
A survivor who had actually killed somebody was pardoned.

For me, I haven't engaged in any serious crime, but I can still be
convicted in illegal ways that utilise loopholes, coercion, etc.  So
it's helpful to have documentation and a friend with some resources,
of which there may be many on this list.

I don't really understand what you mean =(

But what I mean, is that we need to protect expressions of freedom.
The norm of doing that could save our children.  I guess that's kinda
clear though.

Nah, the US govt doesn't do too much.  It's mostly churches and
whatnot.  I'm actually pretty scared to guess what kinds of people
help these things!  I'm worried they'd get hurt.  Let's guess who they
are when we've made it clear we're going to support them.

To repeat, let's support helping people forced to do things against
their will.  There are uncountable people working hard on doing this,
all over the world.  I think the biggest problem is connecting the
victims with the rescuers in a way that works for the victims, but I
don't really know.

To try to help it be more true than it already is, so we can be free sooner.

Functions as a tool of denied global systemic murder, acting with
great obsession to stay that way.  This is obvious, and people work
hard to slowly change it.

I'm pointing out that something is making you move the conversation
away from actual forced labor, and towards pretensions that it relates
to politics or government.

You keep assuming in your talk that there is no such thing as
modern-day slavery, and you seem unable to discuss this.

This makes it clear that you are experiencing it, in a way that is
very hard to understand.

No, I'm just free to talk as if I've been exposed to slavery that is

Regarding anarchism, this is faulty logic.  You have more power if you
steal money from your government.  You just need to avoid all their
traps and influence.  [This is a debate I haven't been exposed to, to
know the details of.  Most anarchists I've talked with seem counter to
saving money; to me that looks like a culture spread to keep them

I say I'm a government agent a lot, but it's just brainwashing.
You're not a stasi, nor a punk.  You're a caring human being.

Thank you.  What you just said isn't logical mostly because it doesn't
use any concepts we've both established.  You need axioms
(assumptions, shared information you agree upon) to make logic.

You said "if anything lacks logic here it is the pretense that so
called 'NGOs' that are a front for the US govt are not evil".  You're
talking about evilness, but what I said regarding 1 NGO was not
related to whether or not it was evil.

I was talking about whether or not it could aid people who were
experiencing violent persistent coercion and did not have other
avenues of aid.

If you can give me a job where I get money instead of injuries, that
is less evil enough for many people that it is preferred.

I can infer that you're expressing worry about government support on
the list.  Elsewhere in this conversation, you mentioned opening
borders.  It seems illogical that you would propose to open borders of
the USA, and also propose to mistrust and avoid US organisations, but
I don't know what information you are assuming.

My name is Punk-Stasi.  You're describing a really important part of
my behavior, that if done well, could help this situation.  Could you
please describe my behavior more accurately?

I wrote the line pretending to be you to help myself think.  Does it
seem okay?  It is hard to describe behaviors of people who appear to
have been influenced to disrupt communities; others are better at it
