Voluntary slavery, is the condition of slavery entered into at a point of voluntary consent. It is distinguished from involuntary slavery where an individual is forced to a period of servitude. Eighteenth century philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau wrote “in a contract of self enslavement, there is no mutuality. The slave loses all. The contract negates his interests and his rights. It is entirely to his disadvantage”. Watch Dr Nkosana Moyo explain the concept of modern self enslavement by Africans.
