    love, had this to say in his "The Wealth of Nations",  under "Wages of Labor"

    the liberal reward of labor, ..., so it increases the industry of the common people.  The wages of labour are the encouragement of industry, which lke every other human quality, improves in proportion to the encouragement it recieves.  A  plentiful subsistance increases the bodily strength...
    In other words, a well-fed person is more fit to work hard.

    An illusion can never be destroyed directly... SK.
