“Where individuals are commanded ‘accumulate!’ it will not be possible to restrict their accumulation except through the rules of a regulated struggle of all with all.  And where society recognizes only the general imperative ‘accumulate!’ it will not be possible to arrive at any notion of an intrinsically just distribution of roles, resources and rewards.  Instead, a set of rules for exchanges between things which reduces them all to a fictional abstract measure, will both disguise and organize (which Marx realized) relationships of arbitrarily unequal power” Being Reconciled, “Socialism by Grace”
