Christina Zinkel The relationship between the ruler and the ruled is portrayed in various settings but altogether the same mannerisms are apparent. The area governed may be as vast as an empire or as small as a household yet the master has the same level of control over the possessions under his jurisdiction. As the management takes place slavery come to question regarding how just it is in any situation. Governing is thus a task between balancing the needs of the people with the most just means available. Mankind deserves no master in the sense of a human controlling another. Though a slave may be spoken of as a possession, it is so in a different sense than inanimate ones. A slave has a mind of its own and could easily do as it pleases but is regarded as a part of the master, thus restricted to assisting the one in command for fear of being a missing part brought back to the whole one has so willingly left.
