After reading a chapter from "The Science of Getting Rich" it was mentioned that coercing someone physically is like slavery. If that is true then isn't coercing by other ways just as bad?

Coercing someone mentally is worse. It can be more easily hidden, is less likely to be punished, and it can sometimes be done without the victim realizing it.
From the book, The Science of Getting Rich:
Consider the problem of employee abuse in the workplace. This problem is hard to identify, difficult to prove, and almost impossible to prosecute. Under US Law, employees are not protected from this kind of abuse because it's not considered a form of discrimination. Abuse is only considered discriminatory if it is executed against one of the protected classes of people.

Interesting you bring up the work place because that is exactly what I was thinking. Between scare tactics and "initiatives" companies are not paying us to perform a duty but to conform to their culture. Either you are with us or against us mentality. Yikes

It's the unspoken, hidden culture within the workplace that is the most nefarious.

By the way, it's interesting that companies like TheSecret.tv will take a public domain book like The Science of Getting Rich, change the fonts around a little, and then try to claim their own copyright over the work! (See http://images.thesecret.tv/The-Science-of-Getting-Rich.pdf, page two)

Hi Michael, I am trying to understand if you feel that there is a connection between the LOA and coercion. Because there is none.

No, I do not at all. Source energy and free will, will always bring all that flows to, to me. I often remember a phrase my mother used to say to me "Michael, Don't FORCE it". How right she was. I only bring up this metaphysical question here because some people may see coercion as an acceptable practice (LOA unrelated). Come to think of of it, some might actually use thou coercion to try to manifest. For me, once I stopped "trying" things feeling and events flow more freely to me. Trying and coercion are forms of resistance in my opinion. Glad you asked :)

I would say that there are instances where this is entirely connected to the Law of Attraction. Consider someone who coerces or manipulates others through negative means (such as whining, or complaining) and what that creates and attracts.
