Kazutaka Hyōdō: For just that small sum of money before their eyes, people can endure a lot. The rich make use of that quality to lead comfortable lives, being waited upon by others. A king is not king on his own. If the poor unite and rebel, declaring that they don't need money, the king will be vanquished. But the poor pursue money in the hopes of becoming king. This strengthens the existence of the current king. As long you don't break out of that fruitless paradox of wanting money, you can never overthrow the king but be chained forever. The king too, tries to prevent revolt by giving everyone a relative sense of abundance and wealth.
