Money has long since been a disease in this country, can't disagree with you there!
What race is/was for the Germans, money (or the lack thereof) still is for the Americans.
Since Reagan and the decline of New Deal America, money has become the sole standard
of everything, from medical care, legal advice, yes, even what passes for friendship.
The US won't en masse shoot groups of citizens at sunrise and shove them into ovens because of their racial background,
it will simply marginalize into submission those who can't keep up with rising costs and
allow them to starve, die off, by attrition. Get rich (quick) or drop dead on your own time.
Both scenarios are pretty ghastly.
