Imagine..... There is no Wealth Bondage.....
OK, well, I come up short, really. No politicians on the take, no think tanks, no philanthropists grandstanding in the news, no sponsors, no proud sponsors, no generous patrons, no honored guests on the dais, no products new and improved, no job descriptions, stock options, no incentive plans, no free market, no unfree market, no market, no quid pro quo, no what goes around comes around, no reciprocity, no thick as thieves, no partnership for a better Wealth Bondage, no blue ribbon commission, no mega-Churches, no Trilateral Commission, no pay for play, no honorarium, no gratuity, no remuneratior nor emolument, no deferred compensation, no stock options, no insider trading, no Carlyle Group, no torture warrants, no alternative procedures, no public relations expert, no pundits, no prostitution, no copyright, no trademarks, no sales marks, no resource wars, no propaganda, no indoctrination, no testing every student ever year, no patriots and no traitors, no red, no blue, no me, no you, no life as we know it, just the sound of hot wind through a dead forest and the sound of sea rising.
There may be an end of history, but there is no end of Wealth Bondage. With it winks out consciousness itself. When Wealth Bondage goes, we go, and vice versa. Even the marauding tribes during the time of Tribulation, will bear in their dreams the lost paradise of Wealth Bondage and wait for the planes to return, bearing precious cargo from the mall, and salvation at a price anyone can afford from a mega-Church. How can we understand Wealth Bondage when we are Wealth Bondage? There is no point outside Wealth Bondage where we can stand and see. Even our God is but the shadow cast by Wealth Bondage. What He demands of us now is loyality to Wealth Bondage. That is the Third Awakening and probably the last. The comes Jesus to save the Faithful in Wealth Bondage. As earthly life flickers out for them - what will be their image of Salvation? What I imagine is. Well, I don't know. Be with God, I guess.

Commenter is from Clemson? I am trying to get a teaching job there. Are there any adjunct positions you know of in English literature? Critical theory and Subaltern studies are my specialties, but I can do Womens Lit, Queer Studies, and Business English too, as needed.
