    children for free.

    Once you've burned out all the resources, or gotten them as cheap as possible, the only possible route to profit remaining is to get labor for as cheap as possible.

    There is nothing cheaper than slavery, and enslaving humanity will always be the goal of the core Elite, and from generation to generation they will pursue this. Always, even when popular revolt forces them to pull their hand back for the moment.

    Today, if you exist... that's already suspicious.

      all that upkeep of feeding, clothing, housing and providing medical care to slaves is expensive.  it's far better to keep the serfs at a remove from the master both physically and psychically, so that the master doesn't get motivated by any of those profit-robbing human emotions through attachments to his serfs, which are easily replaceable when there are 7 billion of them and more every day.
