During the 1940s and 1950s, corrupt politicians championed the politics of [fanatical] anti-communism in order to divert attention from the growing nexus between organized crime, big business and government.
— Jonathan Marshall

I don't interfere with big business. None of those big business guys can say that I ever took a single dollar from them. I don't interfere with their racket. Why can't they leave my racket alone?
— Al Capone (Kenneth Allsop, The Bootleggers, 1970)

Seeing the Wood for the Trees
The ‘salvation’ of the natural environment falls to man. He alone has the power to determine not only his own fate but also that of the natural environment. Far from Christianity being the one that surrenders nature to the arbitrary will and power of humanity, it is the non-Christian view that does this with astounding self-righteousness.
— Archimandrite Vassilios Papavassiliou
