"Here in the future we have no money. We have only the resources that we in our capitalist phase did not plunder to work with, but we have no scarcity. You can reassure Julia we have plenty technology; technology is the brilliance of making something out of anything, of making what we need out of what we had, of aligning our spirits so everyone is on point so much of the time that when one of us falls off, gets scared, or caught up, the harmony of yes yes yes, we are priceless brings them right back into tune with where they need to be. We have the world we deserve and we acknowledge everyday that we make it what it is."
— Alexis Pauline Gumbs, "Evidence" in Octavia's Brood
