"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."

(James True)


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.

Ever.

Yea this idea was pretty well developed in the 60's, that capitalism assigns an exchange value to everything (including reason!). You should check out a book called One Dimensional Man if you're interested in that stuff!

@mastersa woahh! Thank you for the book recommendation, will definitely check it out! 😊😊

Oh my goodness, this quote is frightening, and unfortunately rings so true in this world. We must never learn about how blessed we are and the number of priceless things we have in our lives. What a wonderful reminder to take time to be thankful, gracious and generous with ourselves to thoses around us every day :) Thank you @joeylim

You're welcome! It was sobering for me as well!! (:

Gracious and generous

That should be our motto! ((:
