And at some point you need a definition of “virtue” that excuses whatever behavior power licenses, and this builds until you need a religion that says your wealth is good and not helping people with wealth is good, and an already-rich person is willing to build the Church and do the parody-of-hermeneutics to make Christ a capitalist and wealth a godly thing. Sort of like Pablo Escobar and his pet priests.

See Ayn Rand’s book “The Virtues of Selfishness.”
