Hi Paul:

For what it's worth, many science fiction plots center around the prospect
of humans being enslaved by 'aliens' or vice versa.  The idea that
humans could enslave aliens isn't particularly controversial, that is,
if you accept the possibility that there are 'suitable' (for enslavement)
life forms on other planets, is it?

Whether we have already enslaved other species is another question.  I
think that domesticization (sp?) can be a euphamism.  Aren't some
elephants, for instance, enslaved?

In solidarity, Jerry
