Money Depersonalizes

Just as money homogenizes the things it touches, so also does it homogenize and depersonalize its users.… people become mere parties to a transaction.… Whatever you want to build in this world, you start with an investment, with money. And then, when you have finished your project, it is time to sell it. All things come from money and return to money.  
Charles Eisenstein, Sacred Economics: Money, Gift and Society in the Age of Transition (North Atlantic Books, 2011), p. 40.
