I know what you mean. I charged them with greed and avarice, and they screamed “Free enterprise! Capitaism! We’re in business to make a profit!”, at me. While I believe in those three things, “what profits it a man, if he gain the world, and lose his soul?”

Seems like in the ‘50s, though i was born in ‘68, but from what i was told, it was a different story.
