  1. It remains to understand what “the essence of a slave” is and whether it turns out that this is just a synonym for “a person who oppresses those who are subordinate to him.” If these are synonyms, then the question contains a tautology – “is it true that A is A”.

  2. The essence of a slave is such a system of values (acquired), the owner of which, in order to obtain benefits, intentionally attaches himself to a strong master and for the sake of his mercy, which promises success and promotion to the “slave”, is ready to provide services to the master.

    You can even estimate the degree of “slavery” based on the degree of humiliation of the services provided and the degree of submission to the will of the owner.�

    Life rules of a slave: “Orders of superiors are not discussed”, “I am the boss, you are a fool”, “Any power is from God”, “Any power oppresses someone”, “They know us better up there”, “The giraffe is big – he knows better”. These rules constitute the slave's value system. Of course, this system of values implies the oppression of all those who are subordinate. Let's say a deputy's kept woman oppresses a housekeeper. The officer oppresses soldiers and other subordinates. A guard who becomes a governor oppresses an entire region (while in his own eyes, he is not a slave to the dwarf sovereign, but a Noble Knight of his Majesty).�

    In contrast to “slaves”, there are people who are not capable of unconditional submission. They build systems of relationships based on collegiality, mutual concessions, and evaluation of decisions. This huge pool of highly effective individuals is understandably sidelined from a career in public administration. Therefore, we can safely say that all state administrators in Russia are” essentially ” slaves. And all our policies at all levels have a corresponding flavor.

  3. A little off.

    A person who grew up in a family where the mother or father raised their children not with love (or praise), but with the help of a single whip, begins to oppress their subordinates.

    There is such a slogan of impatient and stupid parents: “With a kind word and a colt, you can get much more out of a person and much faster than with a kind word alone.”

    More correct (effective) education is the use of praise and criticism (carrot and stick) in approximately the same proportions.

    And only at the beginning of building relationships, how to raise puppies. Some just need to be scolded and he will only shit in the tray, and some need to be slapped as soon as they are caught doing something dirty.

    If a person was raised by inept and unkind parents, then how can a person learn to praise and respect? Only on the example of another, successful caregiver.

  4. Oppressing subordinates is the main control mechanism. What is governance without oppression? A person who does not know how to oppress and force will simply not get power, and if he gets it, he will quickly lose it.

    Slavish nature, belonging to the “vile class” (as it is understood in Russian culture) is manifested in the desire to insult, mock and humiliate people. And a person with such an entity will always do this, and not just after gaining power – it does not require subordinates to do this )

  5. There is no “slave entity”. All people are born the same, and initially free. At the same time, there is no god or elder father to whom they should have been grateful to the grave that he gave them health and freedom. Everyone is free and healthy by nature, initially and this is only their merit and property. If you are not free, and not healthy, then most often it is a chain of sad circumstances. At the same time, there is always psychological freedom, and it depends only on the person himself, and no matter how oppressed he is with shackles and chains, ridicule and humiliation, the state of mind still depends only on him.

    If a person grew up in an atmosphere of suppression of his will, like Spartacus, then in most cases, he will not get out of this situation, from this psychological prison, and even if released, he will feel psychological, hierarchical inferiority in the environment of others. The imprint from childhood, where a person was formed, remains forever. Spartak itself is an extraordinary example. Most often, a person will remain in a humble, depressed state. There is also a possibility that he is partially rehabilitated and compensates for all his psychological pain. The print will still be there. There is also a possibility that he will want to take a perverse revenge on his former masters, and it can turn into something terrible that will overwhelm the cruelty that was shown to him, but this probability will be less, and at the same time completely reduced to almost zero, in conditions of good, adequate treatment and environment. To get to power, if the former slave can, then he will definitely not be able to keep it. because this is an extremely aggressive environment of moral confrontation. There, very few people who have undergone positive adaptation can cope with the psychological load.

  6. The question seems a bit strange to me and here's why. First, it is not entirely clear what the “essence of a slave” is. There is a “slave character” in psychology, but who is the “essence of a slave”? A conformist? A real slave turned ruler? Here we know such an example as Spartacus, for example, who was a gladiator, the leader of slaves. He refused royal honors and listened to the opinions of his troops. Does this mean that the “essence of the slave” has not penetrated it? You know, leave the metaphysics of “slavery” to the liberals, with their “squeeze the slave out of themselves drop by drop” and so on. stupid things. Man, by his very nature, is not a slave to other people. A person can be turned into a slave, but it is very difficult to turn him into a slave inside. And there are not so many examples of rulers who “were slaves” in the spiritual and psychological sense, and they are not rulers for long. The mass of people are ready to tolerate a proud ruler, a cruel ruler, a cunning ruler, a weak and physically ugly ruler, but they are not able to tolerate a person with a “slave” warehouse. The ruler is almost always the leader.

    Now next. When rulers gain power, they often begin to oppress people who are subordinate to them – what is the reason for this? Partly in the nature of sociocultural attitudes to oppression, if it is normal in society, then the rulers can safely oppress – no one will say a word to them. Part of this is rooted in the nature of socio-economic relations – class inequality that breeds oppression and exploitation of people. This is partly rooted in socio-political relations and the use of the state as an instrument of violence and coercion (something that rulers especially like to use during the transition period).

  7. True, but its essence has nothing to do with it. Any government oppresses someone.

    Power, by definition, is the ability to impose one's will on others without their consent. A person who has gained power can take it out on someone for his past life, may want to maintain or increase his power. But there are also people for whom power is not a goal, but a tool for influencing the world around them. They oppress for the sake of what they think is good.�

    If you study this question, you can watch the film “Experiment” there is of course unnecessarily dramatic, but this question is well shown. Also check out the materials on the basis of which this film was made, namely “The Stanford prison Experiment”.
