DREAM A LITTLE DREAM

I had a disturbing dream about Siamese twins. When I enquired as to their names I discovered they were named Debt and Slavery.

Without dwelling on the strange naming of these twins, I concentrated on the fact they were co- joined and while being independent there was no separation between them.

One fact was that wherever debt went slavery was obliged to tag along.

So goes my poor analogy because whenever there is debt acquired also there is servitude via a signed contract. As another has said “it is a mortgage on your future. It doesn’t matter how the debt was acquired you have given up a part of your life. There are times when it is necessary to give in to this process in order to get things necessary for living but at other times it is for things we don’t need.

Then there is the issue of power of attorney wherein others act for us. A case in point is how the government can obligate us to trillions of dollars not necessarily for our benefit. Every few years we get to convey our approval or disapproval of those who act for us.

Our next opportunity to express ourselves will be in 2012. The image of the Siamese twins looms large in my mind as we approach that date.

An interesting treatise on this subject can be found at the site below.
