    "The rich man consumes the poor man's losses, creating for him a category of degradation and abjection that leads to slavery."
    "But the masters, who act as if they were the expression of society itself, are preoccupied more seriously than with any other concern - with showing that they do not in any way share the abjection of the men they employ."
    George Bataille, in "Visions Of Excess"
