    i took it to mean that, for most people, for most of human history, there is little more than daily bread to show for toil.

    a man is expended in pursuit of bread. consumed.

    It is probably deeper than that.
    The Neolithic agricultural revolution triggered a population explosion, which devolved into a vicious circle, we became slaves of the land that we tilled.
