Involuntary Servitude is no LOLing Matter


Despite Huggy's age and experience, he can't grasp the complicated idea that it's a form of slavery when government forces somebody to give up years of their life, against their will,  to do labor they don't want to do.  Under threat of force where those who don't comply get punished.  Involuntary servitude is a limited form of slavery.  Duh.

LOL, wut indeed.

Our Constitution fortunately recognizes this obvious fact and forbids the practice.  In a free country, people are not forced to work to benefit others with their labor.  But this fact isn't something taught at Oshgosh so it's beyond Huggy's comprehension.  Real Americans, however, reflexively understand this obvious fact as does our Constitution.  The Thirteenth Amendment states:

Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

 Poor showing there, Huggy.  Very poor.
