    "The two most destructive forces of human nature—greed and envy—drive the financiers, the bankers, the corporate mandarins and the leaders of our two major political parties, all of whom profit from this system.

    "They place themselves at the center of creation.

    "They disdain or ignore the cries of those below them.They take from us our rights, our dignity and thwart our capacity for resistance.

    "They seek to make us prisoners in our own land.

    "They view human beings and the natural world as mere commodities to exploit until exhaustion or collapse. Human suffering, wars, climate change, poverty, it is all the price of business.

    "Nothing is sacred.

    "The Lord of Profit is the Lord of Death.
