The Almighty Dollar

"...upon all the gods of Egypt will I wreak judgments, I am the Lord." (Shemot 12.12)

In Eisav's world, people will do anything for a "buck". The "bottom line" determines everything. "Free markets" and "capitalism" are viewed as God's gift to humanity, chas v'challilah! "Business" is what makes their world go round. They don't even hesitate to sell their very souls.

If there is money to be made, absolutely nothing is off-limits.
House Votes in Favor of Letting ISPs Sell Your Browsing History
Your internet history and browsing habits are for sale, and the House voted Tuesday to keep it that way, rolling back rules that would have barred internet service providers from selling your data without consent.
Trump taps Kushner to lead a SWAT team to fix government with business ideas
President Trump plans to unveil a new White House office on Monday with sweeping authority to overhaul the federal bureaucracy and fulfill key campaign promises — such as reforming care for veterans and fighting opioid addiction — by harvesting ideas from the business world and, potentially, privatizing some government functions.
The White House Office of American Innovation, to be led by Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, will operate as its own nimble power center within the West Wing and will report directly to Trump. Viewed internally as a SWAT team of strategic consultants, the office will be staffed by former business executives....
...Kushner said Sunday in an interview in his West Wing office. “The government should be run like a great American company. Our hope is that we can achieve successes and efficiencies for our customers, who are the citizens.”
The innovation office has a particular focus on technology and data, and it is working with such titans as Apple chief executive Tim Cook, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Salesforce chief executive Marc Benioff and Tesla founder and chief executive Elon Musk. The group has already hosted sessions with more than 100 such leaders and government officials.
The worship of money and the power that is obtained through having great wealth is what is driving these agendas. But, HKB"H is still in charge of His world and no power on earth "trumps" His!!
