in fact, it often seems like society is structured in such a way that would repress elements of our nature (if we assume such a thing exists in any absolute)
Bitch that **** doesn't exist without massive bureaucracies of complicit people who can't even be described as dupes, and massive populations who support the empire because they think it's not only in their best interest but moral and good for their country to own everything. The small minority might benefit the most, but the majority allows for it and cheerleads it.

Kinda, but it's this mindset that fosters "evil". I would say that humans are both. Some are lucky enough to develop the moral intelligence to recognize their capacity for "evil" to keep themselves from being "evil" using their sense of "good" as a justification for "evil", and some don't because of ignorance or an enabling environment or whathaveyou.

My guess is that it's American equipment and they're confirming the video as a flex with free publicity from Tom DeLonge. Or it's one of them Chinamen planes.

Do we attach the word slave to any other specific kind of labor or just sex?

I know we say wage slaves but what why isn’t every other life destroying forced occupation besides sexual prostitution called out for what it is?

It’s so obvious when you’re pissed about something else.
