Anti-Wage-Slavery, Pro-Freedom Quotations 221, 222

It is fallacy that labour produces all wealth, whereas the simple fact is that production is 95 per cent a matter of tools and process.
Major Clifford Hugh Douglas,
Economic Democracy, 1920

The energy necessary to keep human life going we call "internal metabolics." Until recently, with horses and man [sic] doing all the work, primary energy was consumed internally by humanity- this last year, however, only 1% of all energy produced on earth was, and is, being consumed internally by humanity, and 99% is going into tasks outside, which flows through mechanical systems.
R. Buckminster Fuller
