Consumptive Labor

Suppose, however, we ... turn our attention to the fact that ... modern man has more.  This very circumstance sets up a conflict, for it is a constant law of human nature that the more a man has to indulge in, the less disposed he is to endure the discipline of toil - that is to say, the less willing he is to produce that which is to be consumed.
