We have come to a political deification of Mammon.
 Theodore Roosevelt, Theodore Roosevelt; an Autobiography (1913). copy citation

Context

“Said Senator Davis in this admirable address, which should be reprinted and distributed broadcast:
"The liberty of the individual has been annihilated by the logical process constructed to maintain it. We have come to a political deification of Mammon. Laissez-faire is not utterly blameworthy. It begat modern democracy, and made the modern republic possible. There can be no doubt of that. But there it reached its limit of political benefaction, and began to incline toward the point where extremes meet. . . .” source
