"[Work] is the God-given menas whereby man establishes dominion over the earth and realizes his calling under God.... Escape from work is a common desire among men.... they turn to play as a substitute for work. Socialist dreamers [Marx] capitalize on man's frustration.... The result is that man shows a chronic discontent combined with self-righteousness.... An age in which actors and actresses are public idols and heroes is a world of make-believe.... An actor-dominated society... is a consumption-centered society: it progressively loses its capacity to produce."
