Our economic system makes us either whole or not whole. When the entire economy is based on making maximum profit at the least cost it fragments us. We are reduced to worker and buyer. We are not workers and buyers but whole beings to begin with. It is the harsh inanimate logic of classical economics that fragments us. Once divided, we lose touch with the whole life and simultaneously work a lot and buy a lot. We do this without joy for we are separated from ourselves.
