And here I thought 'wealth bondage' was either a) a phrase designed to assuage the conscience of rich folks by letting them think that the chains that bind them to their 1040 forms are as heavy as the chains that bind the poor to their market gardens and prostitute daughters, or b) meta-ironic fun-poking at (a).

Silly me.

Sorry, Stavros, that is Smoky Joe's interpretation too. Through good planning he can break the chains that connect wealth to taxes. The planning can involve tax planning, expatriation of dollars to tax havens, or the rewriting of the tax code itself by means of strategic philanthropy directed to Heritage, AEI, and Hudson, among others, plus direct gifts and lobbying.

Wealth Bondage is the silence that is incomprehensible and the idea whose remembrance is frequent.
Wealth Bondage is the voice whose sound is manifold and the word whose appearance is multiple.
Wealth Bondage is the utterance of its name.
Wealth Bondage is the one who is disgraced and the great one.
Wealth Bondage is the one whom they call law, and you have called lawlessness.
Wealth Bondage is the one before whom you have been ashamed, and you have been shameless to Wealth Bondage.
Wealth Bondage is she who does not keep festival, and Wealth Bondage is she whose festivals are many.
Wealth Bondage is the hearing which is attainable to everyone and the speech which cannot be grasped.
Wealth Bondage is a mute who does not speak, and great is her multitude of words.
Hear Wealth Bondage in gentleness, and learn of Wealth Bondage in roughness.
Wealth Bondage is the name of the sound and the sound of the name.
Wealth Bondage is the sign of the letter and the designation of the division.
Look then at the words of Wealth Bondage and all the writings which have been completed.
Give heed then, you hearers, and you also, the angels and those who have been sent, and you spirits who have arisen from the dead.
For Wealth Bondage is the one who alone exists, and Wealth Bondage has no one who will judge her.

Love it, thanks. The Lost Gospels of Wealth Bondage, found in an ancient sack of garbage.

Wealth Bondage is not constructed. WealthBondage is - it is we that are consructed in WealthBondage. We are its Work of Art. WealthBondage is an Artist constructing us in its image. Amen.

Wealth Bondage simply is. We are constructed of, by and for Wealth Bondage. We are its product, not its producers. Human lives come and go, Wealth Bondage remains.

I recently found this old and tattered book in one of the dumpsters in one of *my* alleys .. funny title .. "Of Human Bondage", by a guy with a hoity-toity sounding name I'm not sure I can pronounce.

Does it have anything in common with wealth bondage ? I mean, this guy Phillip is an artist (or at least wants to be) and he seems to have trouble with jobs and money and stuff.

Yes, indeed. Of Human Bondage, the bondage to the flesh.

Clearly Wealth Bondage is unclarity itself, often seen in its literary double.
An instrument playing itself, if you will...

Wind-chimes, the music of the wind, the old Romantic conceit. And the wind is rising in a coming storm.

hmmmm.... Very intersting. Wealth Bondage? I was just thinking of this yesterday. The condition where everything in life seems like a Market. I will exploit you, but only 10%. Did you know that the Federal Reserve is not a government organization but instead a privately held corporation. I found a documentary "The Money Masters" on google video:

The Money Masters 1 of 3

The Money Masters 2 of 3

The Money Masters 3 of 3

Greed and avarice have become common place.

I have practiced wealth bondage for many years and have attained Master status

Feel my wealth, and enjoy it while you can.

Dick? Your name is really Dick Quick? You know they have special spray for that?

Why don't you come back, Sweetie, when you have fixed that little problem of yours.

Oh SNAP! THAT SHIT IS OFF THE FUCKING HOOK! Can you please put it back on the hook please? It may lose its battery power, and I charged it for hours. Thank you.

As for me the bondage must be safe – when both parties agree on safety basics. This means that basically BDSM activity should wear no risk to health. Well, the risk of course is inevitable and either sub or dom is aware of the possible consequences, but what you both realize is that you both are to take the responsibility. I personally think that in any case you should realize that if you are not going to try something harder and dangerous you should stop and tell it to your partner beforehand, and if you opt for risk than just make sure you've taken more serious precautions.

Thanks. Any tips for doing wealth bondage safely, like hold onto your wallet?

Cash is so 20th Century. Soon credit cards will be passé too ... there may be a terrorist risk associated with their use.

Next up will be thumbprint and eye-scanning technologies that tap into Possible Enema Combatant databases ... thumb screws and hoods will suffice for those needing second-degree bondage.

Better not to talk about it, JJ. The higher ups know what is best for us. I support the Decider. Candidia loves us.
