Relinquishing power

Shemitta is about relinquishing power. 
The literal meaning of the word shemitta is to release one's hold on something, which is as unequivocal an expression as one can get of the instruction to relax one's control over something, be it the land or the fruit of the land or one's fellows' personal debts.
