A thought on capitalism & industry

In order to participate in "the market" the pure buying and selling of things, one must give up the time it takes to produce for oneself (gardening, cooking, maintaining the home, etc). This creates a dependence of those participating in the market on those in the areas of production and service. So, as dependent as those at the bottom may seem to be of the top, the opposite is also true. If the top didn't have the bottom to produce, there would be nothing to buy and sell.
