[Capitalism]: Adam Smith betrayed his own morals.

Even though he wrote https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_The ...

Thus, whilst people may call Adam Smith the father of economics, to say that he was actually a person of good morals was perhaps to overlook the fact that he self-contradicted (overturned) his own moral idels and sold them off when offered a plush government job (doing just the opposite of what he originally felt was morally sound all along).

Thus, Adam Smith was a fallen angel who betrayed his own morals just like any other.
