Danger of unbridled capitalism

The greed of gain has no time or limit to its capaciousness. Its one object is to produce and consume. It has pity neither for beautiful nature nor for living human beings. It is ruthlessly ready without a moment's hesitation to crush beauty and life out of them, molding them into money.
This was written by Rabindranath Tagore.  In 1913 he was the first Indian to earn the Noble Peace Prize for literature.  He was a prolific poet, playwright, and world traveler.
