"An Other Kingdom" quote

I just started reading "An Other Kingdom" by Peter Block, Walter Brueggemann, and John McKnight. It is off to a strong start. I wanted to share this quote...

Economic systems [like the one we all live in] based on competition, scarcity, and acquisitiveness have become more than a question of economics; they have become the kingdom within which we dwell. That way of thinking invades our social order, our ways of being together, and what we value. It replicates the kingdom of ancient Egypt, Pharaoh’s kingdom.
— An Other Kingdom p.xiii
