Food for Thought / It is only when labor power takes on the form of a commodity belonging to wage workers that all the other products of labor also take on the commodity form. A commodity is a mysterious thing because in it the social character of people''s labor appears to them as an objective quality stamped upon the products of that labor. It is mysterious because the relation of the producers to the sum total of their own labor is no longer visible to them as a relation between themselves, but instead as a relation between their products. A definite social relation between people takes on the fantasy form of a relation between things. / If you don''t sell your life, / How can you buy back your survival?
