The capitalist creed

Business is power, poetry, pleasure, life—all in one. Business feeds people, clothes them, houses them ; provides their necessities, their amusements, their luxuries. Business has called into being the steamship, the express train, the motor-car ; the telegraph, the telephone, the wireless. Business bridges rivers, tunnels through mountains, cuts canals through continent. Business is the Atlas of the World. There’s no higher profession than business on the big scale. All the other professions live on crumbs from the business man’s table. Law—that’s the safeguarding of business and property at home. The Army—that’s fighting for it abroad. Medicine—that’s making people fit for their job. Politics—that’s altering laws to meet the changing requirements of business.
—”The modern Chesterfield,” Max Rittenberg.
