“Centralize property in the hands of a few and the millions are under bondage to property–a bondage as absolute and deplorable as if their limbs were covered with manacles. Abstract all property from the hands of labor and you thereby reduce labor to dependence; and that dependence becomes as complete a servitude as the master could fix upon his slave.”

–Lewis Henry Morgan, “Diffusion Against Civilization”
