Stock - livestock
Bond - bondage

The two terms that define the global financial market.

Both derived from the stolen labor of people in chais. Minds denied.

I must thank Amanda Walker for helping me connect that simplicity.

Please explore both words.

I think bondman and bondwoman are also identified in "god's" word as well.  

The word knight, from Old English cniht ("boy" or "servant"),[4] is a cognate of the German word Knecht ("servant, bondsman").[5] This meaning, of unknown origin, is common among West Germanic languages (cf Old Frisian kniucht, Dutch knecht, Danish knægt, Swedish knekt, Norwegian knektMiddle High German kneht, all meaning "boy, youth, lad", as well as German Knecht "servant, bondsman, vassal").[4]


One of the translations of the word `ebhedh, very common in the Old Testament. It refers to the ordinary slave, either foreign (Genesis 43:18; 44:9,33; Leviticus 25:44,46) or Hebrew (Leviticus 25:42; 2 Kings 4:1). Hebrews were forbidden to enslave Hebrews, but did it nevertheless. It also refers to the Israelites in the bondage of Egypt (Deuteronomy 15:15, and often), and in the exile of Babylonia (Ezra 9:9). The intended treatment of the men of Judah in Samaria (2 Chronicles 28:10) was apparently to sell them into ordinary slavery or bondage. The word is used once in the New Testament (Revelation 6:15) to translate doulos, where it evidently means a slave in contrast with a freeman.


It appears bondage could be a combination of two words bond + age.

Interesting as I was doing some research into Boers and Trekboers I've returned back to Bond. I looked up the word Boer in a dictionary, the etymology bracket directed me to See Boor.  When I read about boor the etymology bracket directed me to see Bond 2.  When I read Bond 2, it read, "obsolete in serfdom or slavery.  Interesting enough it appears "Boers" aka peasants, aka farmers, aka, bondsmen, aka slaves became identified as Trekboers to escape being slaves of those who controlled the Dutch East India Company.  


From time to time, servants in the direct employment of the company were endowed with the right of "freeburghers"; but the company retained the power to compel them to return into its service whenever they deemed it necessary. This right to force into servitude those who might incur the displeasure of the governor or other high officers was not only exercised with reference to the individuals themselves who had received this conditional freedom; it was claimed by the government to be applicable likewise to the children of all such.  The effect of this tyranny was inevitable: it drove men to desperation. They fled from oppression, and even before 1700 trekking began.

After reading this again, I had the thought of the word stockade as I read stock.  According to Wiki the word stockade also refers to a military prison in an army camp, and in some cases, even a crude prison camp or a slave camp. In these cases, the stockade keeps people inside, rather than out.

In an effort to obtain some understanding of the information here, I looked again into the word "bond."  I nearly exclaimed the word attributed to Archimedes when I located the tether that links Boer with Boor and Bond.

The Trekboere were seminomadic pastoralists, subsistence farmers who began trekking both northwards and eastwards into the interior to find better pastures/farmlands for their livestock to graze, as well as to escape the autocratic rule of the Dutch East India Company (or VOC), which administered the Cape. They believed the VOC was tainted with corruption and not concerned with the interests of the free burghers, the social class of most of the Trekboers.[1]

Namaska, Adisa! I do think you may just about have it (I will have to do this work for myself!).

Keeping the stockade full of bondsmen - that is the asset left after such secured and unsecured debts are exhausted. And so seemingly, the foundation of our financial markets - which have then created bondsmen inside the stockade of most all of us who are not holding "stocks" and "bonds."

My question becomes:

How much of our new world's financial power is literally ON PURPOSE in regard to the origin of the words? Is it coincidence (surely not)?  Are these lessons the elites teach their children privately so as to chortle at the rest of us? (This last part is becoming a central theme of my study - perhaps grandpa moneybags sits the children down and tells them what they really need to know; what they should never share with the common bondspeople.)

This should make things even more clearer.....

In finance, a bond is an instrument of indebtedness of the bond issuer to the holders.  It is a debt security, under which the issuer owes the holders a debt and, depending on the terms of the bond, is obliged to pay them interest (the coupon) and/or to repay the principal at a later date, termed the maturity date.[1]   Bonds and stocks are both securities, but the major difference between the two is that (capital) stockholders have an equity stake in the company (i.e., they are investors), whereas bondholders have a creditor stake in the company (i.e., they are lenders). Being a creditor, bondholders have priority over stockholders.

The stock (also capital stock) of a corporation constitutes the equity stock of its owners. It represents the residual assets of the company that would be due to stockholders after discharge of all senior claims such as secured and unsecured debt.

The United East Indian Company (DutchVereenigde Oost-Indische CompagnieVOC), referred to by the British as the Dutch East India Company,[2] was originally established as a chartered company in 1602, when the Dutch government granted it a 21-year monopoly on Dutch spice trade. It is often considered to have been the first multinational corporation in the world [3] and it was the first company to issue stock.[4] It was a powerful company, possessing quasi-governmental powers, including the ability to wage war, imprison and execute convicts,[5] negotiate treaties, strike its own coins, and establish colonies.[6]

The Amsterdam Stock Exchange was established in 1602 by the Dutch East India Company (Verenigde Oostindische Compagnie, or "VOC") for dealings in its printed stocks and bonds.[2] It was subsequently renamed the Amsterdam Bourse and was the first to formally begin trading in securities.
