Certainly, there are assertions that can be heard regarding slaver outside the United States—particularly as it certainly still happens today—where people are used as a guarantee on debt, forced labor, and chattel slavery.

The diversion from "Reason" to the realm of the fantastic is too elaborate to serve as a reminder of what is good and what has gone astray in the novella. The exotic and often fanciful depiction achieves the effect of what can be simply termed as the everyday prosaic and what is romantic and lofty - the world of the "phenomenal" as opposed to the Kantian world of the "noumenal".
