The Slavery of Our Times

The Slavery of Our Times by Leo Tolstoy

Leo Tolstoy’s "The Slavery of Our Times" is a powerful and thought-provoking essay that delves into the concept of modern-day slavery. Tolstoy argues that while physical slavery may have been abolished, we are all still enslaved in various ways by the oppressive systems of our society. He highlights how people are coerced into labor through economic necessity, control over their thoughts and opinions by the media, and silencing of dissent by governments and corporations.

Tolstoy’s writing is clear and concise, making his arguments easy to follow and understand. He presents a compelling case for breaking free from the mental chains that bind us and encourages readers to think critically about the systems that govern their lives. Despite being written over a century ago, his words are still relevant in today’s world, where many people continue to be oppressed and exploited.

Overall, "The Slavery of Our Times" is a thought-provoking read that challenges readers to reconsider their own freedoms and the ways in which they may be enslaved. Tolstoy’s insights are as relevant today as they were when he wrote them, making this essay a must-read for anyone interested in social justice and liberation.

Book Description:
This little book shows, in a short, clear, and systematic manner, how the principle of Non-Resistance, about which Tolstoy has written so much, is related to economic and political life.
