Re: Are "Dolls" slaves?

I realised the other day that Dollhouse is Joe 90 with tits. Echo even wears his specs at one stage in Ghost.
Joe 90 was even creepier given that the father was programming his son -- perhaps an extrapolation of how parents fcuk up their children (as Philip Larkin put it in This Be The Verse).

IMO the dolls are slaves in that their mental state prevents them from opting out.
