It is the state not the market that thrives on fear and greed.
Fear, because the masses are afraid of everything and will flock to the state for “protection” and safety, surrendering their lives, liberties, and property in the process.
Greed, because big business and big labor seek to use the state to rig the game in their favor unjustly, thereby ripping people off and retarding economic progress.
In the market, fear has the virtuous form of responsibility, and greed, the form of pursuit of happiness. The state corrupts these into terrible vices.
