"We mocked life for so long we forgot it’s priceless. Two things happen in a system where everything has a price. We lose the meaning of priceless. We gain the meaning of worthless. Putting a price on things is a spell we imbue in the aether. It sticks like goo to what we assign it for the rest of our life. These grapes are $3.99. That racehorse is $7.2 Million. We traverse the matrix with a price gun tagging everything with the mark of the beast. We place our children on the shelf for sale. When I was fifteen-years-old I was worth $4.25. We sell our essence by the hour. We pretend its sane to chase zeros with decimal tails."
This quote sent chills down my spine. Not because it is scary, but because it is scarily true.
It made me pray before I eat, that I will lose sight of the sacred for the $ sign.
