Watch money. Money is the barometer of a
society’s virtue. When you see that trading is done, not by consent but by
compulsion, when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain
permission from men who produce nothing, when you see that money is flowing to
those who deal not in goods but in favors, when you see that men get richer by
graft and by pull than by work and your laws don’t protect you against them,
but protect them against you, when you see corruption being rewarded and
honesty becoming a self-sacrifice, you may know that your society is
doomed.

Excerpt from Atlas Shrugged, by Ayn Rand,
1957.
