The Ethics of Mammon

“Idolatries of mammon are unanimous in their insistence that it is more blessed to receive than to give; their ethic therefore is one of taking. Political economies that follow them are inflationary and redistributive. They elevate respectable forms of stealing into principles of virtue, putting themselves in the position of those whom the prophet denounced: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil” (Is. 5:20). That is why it is not the worst elements of society that are the most dangerous but those whom society has judged the most worthy of respect and trust, just as in the Old Testament: the objects of the prophets’ wrath were the princes, judges, and religious leaders.” (Herbert Schlossberg, Idols for Destruction, p. 137).
