Interesting post. A few months ago I had the idea to make a "levels of freedom chart" like this, and you reminded me of it:

Level 0: Actual slavery

Level 1: Debt slavery

Level 2: Wage slavery

Level 3: Slavery to social pressure

Level 4: Slavery to one's own moods and feelings

Level 5: Slavery to one's own ego (I define ego as the story you tell yourself, about yourself)

Level 6: ??

I don’t know that the levels would be this clear cut but I 100% back the popularizing of something along these lines.

In any case, I certainly agree that most see:

Quality Of Life > “Slavery” (?)
