"If you ask me to name the proudest distinction of Americans, I would choose... the fact that they were the people who created the phrase 'to make money'. No other language or nation had ever used these words before; men had always thought of wealth as a static quantity -- to be seized, begged, inherited, shared, looted or obtained as a favor. Americans were the first to understand that wealth has to be created." - Ayn Rand

    Only makes sense...creating wealth not only insures one's survival but often the survival and oppertunities for others as well.
    The free market capitalist system mimics how the cells in our bodies work. Each individual cell is responsible for it's own survival...when those conditions are met any excess value is passed on...in life outside our cells that means, charity and investments in the activities of others.

    I call it being "Celfish".
