Possibilities Thrown Away

The development of the means of production would allow, the mode of production does suspend …

Spare the hand that grinds the corn, Oh, miller girls, and softly sleep. Let Chanticleer announce the morn in vain! Deo has commanded the work of the girls to be done by the Nymphs, and now they skip lightly over the wheels, so that the shaken axles revolve with their spokes and pull round the load of the revolving stones. Let us live the life of our fathers, and let us rest from work and enjoy the gifts that the Goddess sends us.

(Antipatros Sidonios, 2nd century BC)

(Taken from Karl Marx, Capital, volume I)
