Money Wisdom #330

"Everything that 'justifies' our behavior needs to be re-examined and overturned; how to keep from saying simply that thought is an enterprise of enslavement: it is the subordination of the heart, of passion, to incomplete economic calculations. Humanity is letting itself be led the way a child submits to a professor; a feeling of poverty paralyses it."

Georges Bataille The Accursed Share Vol 2 The History of Eroticism (1988 [1967]) p.105
