"Capitalism, like all abusive relationships, creates a sense of learned helplessness in its victims. We are complicit in what it makes of us: we want so badly for what it tells us to be true.

It’s a beautiful fairy tale, no more complex, and no less seductive, than any of the stories that animate Disney World."
