3. It has always been about the power to direct governments.
And it has forever been true that 'wealth' manifests power by bending people seeking 'wealth' to the will of those with the 'wealth.'

It's so very deep a pattern in our culture that it's even part of western civilization's dominant theologies...God has the power to grant immortal happiness, he only will grant it to those lesser beings who worship him and bend to do his will.
