Jesus and Karl Marx agree on one thing: money leaches out other values

“Politics have gotten more and more ugly because, finally, the strongest ideas of the twentieth century all ended in disaster. The idea of socialism as the great egalitarian ideal ended in oppression. The profundity of the Germans in culture ended with the Nazis. And the great belief that democracy and capitalism are bona fide goods will probably end with the idea that everybody will go ass-over-teakettle for money.”
