(1) Before the wolves can get him, however, he is rescued by a wise old shepherd and brought up as a helot , one of the aboriginal population the Spartans have enslaved.(2) Plato, for example, remarked that the helot system was the most controversial example of servitude in Greece.(3) The Nazis apparently intended to reduce Slavs such as the Poles to the status of helots .(4) By abandoning the effort, we are, in effect, implementing a new form of helotage .(5) The numbers amount to a huge under-estimate of the actual rise in state-subsidised helotry .(6) Altogether, these papers provide a stimulating overview of the major questions, debates, and methodologies in current scholarship on helotage in one accessible volume.(7) Compulsory labour takes a considerable variety of forms, today as in the past - debt bondage, clientship, peonage, helotage , serfdom, chattel slavery, and so on.(8) The hard helotism to which the tremendous range of the sciences condemns every scholar today is a main reason why those with a fuller, richer, profounder disposition no longer find a congenial education and congenial educators.(9) The Scottish Socialist Party, the sole ark of salvation to which 128,026 Scots look for emancipation from capitalist helotry , is in meltdown.(10) He next persuaded Athens to send him with a large hoplite force to help Sparta against the helots , now in revolt.(11) However while Sparta tried to deliberately avoid creating a class structure among its citizens, the existence of helotage ensured that there was always the possibility of a class war and opportunity for large-scale revolt.(12) Sparta had also, in the late 8th century, defeated and annexed the territory of Messenia, its western neighbour, reducing its population to helotry and dividing its land among the full Spartiate citizens.(13) The Spartans had, in the archaic era, annexed the adjacent territory of Messenia and forced the once-independent Messenians into helotage .(14) Boeotia was agriculturally rich but had neither Athens' silver nor Sparta's helots .(15) Ancient and modern authors have found it very difficult to define helotism , because it was not considered to be an ordinary type of unfree labor.(16) If Joe Public shrugs off each new encroachment as minor in itself, he will have only himself to blame if he ends up in state-controlled helotry .
