It is my conviction that it is impossible to separate material achievement from spiritual achievement. Man cannot function in a vacuum. Material things uplift other men and give them opportunity to help, still, others. All of our works on ethics and philosophy are printed on paper. Our churches and synagogues are built of steel, stone, and mortar. A surgical suture is made in a factory. Thus, I have profound respect for our capitalistic, economic system. It has given us the goods needed for man’s self respect, to relieve his suffering, and to lighten his burden.
