The Civilization of Selfishness
I recently came across this article by Dinesh D'Souza titled "The Civilization of Selfishness". Quite a neat article in defence of Capitalism. I particularly liked the way he reasoned out why capitalism works : "... capitalism works to civilize greed, just as marriage civilizes lust. Greed and lust are human emotions: They cannot be eradicated by all the exhortations of well-meaning central planners and theologians. Indeed, to the degree that greed leads to effort and lust to pleasure, who would want to eradicate them?" Umm...point to ponder :-)
