Slavery and the money system

page 757 from the The Mentinah Archives Volume One thru Nine (As of Jan. 12, 2011):
Come, reason now with me.
If a basket of potatoes is valued at so and so tums, then the man who dug them is worth so many more. But in this system, is the man anything but so many tums more than the basket? And if a house is valued at so many dekels, is the man who built it worth so many more? Then, is not the man simply so many dekels more than the house? If man is only tum or dekel, then he can be bought for so
many also. Behold, he unto whom we give authority to value a man, we give,
also, all men to be his slave. Yea, and when we give way to a system of money,
we give unto that system authority to enslave us all. Now, I say unto you, and I
do not trifle with this saying, Zion cannot and will not be established where there is any form of slavery.
