10. This reminds me of the corrupt popes and church officials...

Who sold indulgences and phony relics.

Remember Chaucerís The Pardonerís 5ale?

Dear lords," said he, "in churches, when I preach,
I am at pains that all shall hear my speech,
And ring it out as roundly as a bell,
For I know all by heart the thing I tell.
My theme is always one, and ever was:
'Radix malorum est cupiditas.'
