PLUTUS AND MYTH OF MONEY.

I. Invocation.

We all worship money, believers or atheists, smart or stupid, holy or wicked, strong or weak, rich or poor, men or women. One way or another we submit to this lesser god of Plutus and his stone age ancestors no matter how much we deny it. But why we worship something, a blind chimera-child no one has courage to see for what it truly is, an illusion, magician trick, a cruel joke pulled over destitude population.
