Materialism

Martin Luther King often spoke of the three basic roots of injustice: racism, militarism and materialism.

From the Gandhian Iceberg, by Chris Moore-Backman:

St. Basil put it plainly: “You with a second coat in your closet, it does not belong to you.  You have stolen it from the poor one who is shivering in the cold.”
Only the destitute
     Are innocent
Only those who have no bread
     Have no fault
 John Dominic Crossan

“Divine law gives to man from day to day his daily bread and no more”.  Gandhi
