The Author Function has returned, as if from the dead. And he has appointed me his Authorized Interpreter. The meaning is suddenly quite clear: There is a way out of Wealth Bondage, after all. It has something to do, apparently, with the gift of therapeutic philosophy. Philosophy is the pharmakon, yes, both poison and homeopathic cure, but in a far deeper way than Derrida ever grasped. He himself was caught up in his own blindness. Ironically, he was hoist with his own binaries, if you will. Philosophy properly conducted, say, by me, is the remedy that will set us free, by curing us of our bondage to our base passions, such as greed, that the market plays upon here in Wealth Bondage. I don't know why I did not see that before! How stupid of me. It is all laid out right here in Seneca. We must master our passions or we will be mastered by them! That is the truth. And the truth will set us free. I have to go tell Tom Matrullo about this. He can call off his search for hidden meaning. Eureka! We have it, Tom.
