Interesting concept. You're still of course reducing the world to the owners and the owned, with no room for fuzziness in your descriptions, but that's up to you.

You still haven't said why it is 'right' that people should not be slaves. You've just said that you don't want to be one.

It is an interesting point that you cannot make someone a slave who would rather die than be one. But then the majority of us don't fall into either master or slave categories according to most defiitions.
