The case of an imploding state

“Do you wish to know whether that day is coming? Watch money. Money is the barometer of a society’s virtue. When you see that trading is done not by consent, but by compulsion — when you see that, in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing — when you see that money if flowing to those who deal not in goods, but in favours — when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you — when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice — you may know that your society is doomed.” — Ayn Rand
