The Free Bondsman

The Free Bondsman

This present blog was created and will exist as a clear and lucid attestation and documentation coupled with scientific analysis on the conditions and forces which create in the individual the following contradiction in terms of behavior and personal identity:

In modern society, especially in the European and Western societies the citizen in particular and the person in general has become A FREE BONDSMAN.

What does that mean and to whom is there blame directed?

The blame (and consequently, the accountability) is directed to far more factors than it seems and it is NOT solely or strictly the responsibility of the citizen him/herself and of the individual him/herself as it is generally preached by the socialization principles of every person.

Invisible but very powerful forces of manipulation on a personal, interpersonal and social level create an impermeable grey area in which everyone is at fault and by virtue of that, nobody is.

But before we begin analyzing the direction of blame and the systematic fogging of the awareness of every well-meaning and conscientious person concerning the process of action-reaction permeating our everyday lives, we must first define what the Free Bondsman really is:

The definition for ‘Free’ is:[1]

a) Able to act at will; not hampered; not under compulsion or restraint

b) Not held in servitude

c) Without obstructions

d) Unrestricted and Unconstrained

On the contrary, the definition of ‘Bondsman’ is:[2]

a) a slave

b) someone who is bound to serve without wages

c) someone who signs a bond as surety for someone else

And to better understand (a) in the definition of Bondsman, a ‘Slave’ is: [3]

a) a person who is held in servitude

b) a person who is not ‘Free’

c) a person who is owned by someone else

Therefore, how do we define The Free Bondsman?

The Free Bondsman is defined as the person who theoretically is free to act at will and evaluate, judge and think of matters without pressures, blackmail or compulsions about what he/she wants to be and how he/she wants to behave. This person truly believes that he/she is truly free and acting or behaving at will, without compulsions, but “within logical limits” .

The Free Bondsman is often inhibited by admonitions and blackmail of the type:

“This is not logical/rational/wise this does not make sense”

“This is simply not done”

“What will the people say?”

“What will _________ say?”

“You only think about yourself/ you are so selfish”

“you are cruel/thick skinned”

“You won’t be the one to say what is right”

“You must have a leader/ herder/ ruler in order to exist well”

“You aren’t able to make this decision/ you can’t make this decision”

“You can’t decide for yourself”

“Nobody will pay attention to you/ heed you even if you do speak out your opinion”

“Let someone else do that/ stick their neck out”

“That’s what everyone does/ this is the way it is/ this can’t change”


So, when the Free Bondsman reaches the limits of the accepted ‘free’ behavior, in come the shackles of social blackmail and out goes the alleged freedom. There only remains the Bondsman, not at all free, who obeys rules and orders because of fear and the emotional but also actual blackmail enforced on him/her.

In our society, Free Bondsmen are as free as the fish in an aquarium with an artificial background depicting the ocean: they can go anywhere within the constraints of the glass wall-limits and they can see the virtual ocean but they cannot ever experience it…

…ever? Not really. A small team of Free Bondmen have managed to break free of their aquarium, become Free Individuals and ever since they stand up against the efforts by third parties to force them to go back to “their place”.

The process to do the same is simple but not easy, unless we are determined to follow it through. In this case, it is not only simple, clear and manageable, but also really exciting.

And how does one make the first step?

Before we do anything and decide upon anything, we learn what the real setting is and what the real conditions we live in every day are.

We then see who is responsible for what.

We realize the true power all of us without exception have and use daily. As proof of this, just consider the fact that nobody is ever interested in controlling, affecting and subjugating a feeble and generally weak being. On the contrary, a good bondsman/ employee/ inferior/ subject must be extra strong and in possession of many and varied abilities in order to be of use. The feeble and the weak subjects are executed or left to wither and die as they are of no use.

To whom?

That is something we will begin to explore in the next article.

Have you ever felt in this or a similar way? Send me an e-mail with the description of the emotions and the situation pertinent and we will analyze it either here or in private if you prefer that.
