More Bricks


A machine in India can create almost 300 bricks a minute!

Of course, had the ancient Hebrew people come up with this, Pharaoh would have ordered 400 bricks a minute.

As Walter Brueggemann explains in his book Sabbath as Resistance: "Pharaoh endlessly demands more production. ... Because the system was designed to produce more and more surplus (see Gen. 47:13–26), there is always more need for storage units that in turn generated more need for bricks with which to construct them."

More, more, more. Unless we resist. Unless we sabbath.
