Radical equality prevails

For six years the people reciprocate God's gifts by the honor system; in the seventh year all the property becomes non-private and radical equality prevails. 
In the seventh year Israelites don't need to depend on people's sense of honor to acknowledge and appreciate the gifts they receive from others or from God because they don't need to release what doesn't belong to them in the first place.
