If you take a man off of the

If you take a man off of the street and force him into slavery you violate the principle of self ownership. That's not capitalism. People using forced labor are not capitalists.

Government can increase greed and materialism by issuing debt at low interest rates. The message is spend, spend, spend and don't worry about tomorrow. This is spending beyond your means and without responsibility. What could be more greedy than that?

Greed (government banking system) = spend irresponsibly and beyond your means.

Capitalism (free market banking system) = spend wisely and within your means in order to enhance your life over time.
