Peitsche oder Geld

It is easy to ridicule Ayn Rand, but there is a grain of truth in her famous “hymn to money”: “Until and unless you discover that money is the root of all good, you ask for your own destruction. When money ceases to become the means by which men deal with one another, then men become the tools of other men. Blood, whips and guns or dollars. Take your choice -there is no other.”

Slavoj Žižek, Like a thief in broad daylight
