Among the methods of control: * Fear and intimidation. * Isolation. * Mental manipulation, degradation and ridicule. * Giving the slaves a pseudo-sense of security and protection.

Masters controlled the slaves during the American Revolution. Mostly the war was fought in the north then in the south. So the war didn't effect their living really.

Slaves have no choices. That is why it is called slavery. They have no say as to what they do, when they do it, or how it is done. They are completely controlled by their masters.

Well, the slave masters were not always mean to their slaves. Some slave masters helped the slaves with their education which I think is pretty nice.

Gladiators for pratical purposes were slaves. They were conquered people who were bought and sold for the sole purpose of the games. Therefore, they had masters and owners.

Because, they were property to their slave masters, and the slave masters could do anything that they wanted to the slaves in order for the slaves to keep their lives.

slaves have to remain loyal to their masters or else they get beaten and whipped. most masters whip their slaves if they don't do what they are asked to. slaves have to be careful and do as they are asked.

Slaves typically do not rebel because their masters have access to weapons and the slaves do not.

All slaves served their masters for their masters' or their life. Different cultural angles such as America ,gave the owner freedom to release slaves whenever wanted.

Generally speaking, when slaves obey their masters it is to avoid being beaten or killed. Disobedient slaves are severely punished.

Slaves did anything their masters wanted them to do from giving them a foot rub to going to plow the fields. Anything the slave master wanted.

It depends on their masters. The majority of slave masters were cruel and harsh. They didn't at all consider how the slaves felt, after all they were slaves. But there was a rare case where the masters were kind. Some would even teach the young slaves how to read and write. It was very rare though.
