—“There are too many examples of how the short-sighted, or medium-sighted, values of our commercial elite conflict with the long-term values of the genetic and cultural group. This isnât a new phenomenon but its effects have been amplified since the industrial revolution and our defenses have not kept pace with or adequately utilized the technological advances of the day. The influence of the commercial sector is vast and restraints on it are ineffective. An additional problem is that since the death of god and the disintegration of our religious institutions, we perceive profit in wholly materialistic terms. I think your emphasis on an expanded appreciation of property may be an antidote to this aspect of the problem.”— Tim Spillane
Commercialism (Unregulated Capitalism) = Universalism at the expense of the people who make such commerce possible.
