Cult of the Holy Dollar

Conservatives/libertarians/businessmen are often accused of “worshiping money.” It’s not literally true, of course. You don’t see people bowing toward Wall Street several times a day or treating the local banks with reverence or even usually bathing in their money a la Scrooge McDuck.

But just imagine if people did worship money! We could make the sign of the dollar rather than the cross, as in Atlas Shrugged. We could measure devotion to the penny. And as for people who offended this glorious new faith, we could papercut their heads off.
