Given her performance or lack thereof

The doomed man sticks to his little whims.

The doomed man wakes up before dawnthe hour for executions.

His need of tradition.

The doomed man likes to complain of his poor memory.

The doomed man is always concealing some fear.

Self-deception is possible for a time, etc.


Primarily this is because rulers of the
exchange of mankind's goods have failed through their own stubbornness and their own incompetence, have admitted their failure, and have abdicated. Practices of the unscrupulous money changers stand indicted in the court of public opinion, rejected by the hearts and minds of men. True they have tried, but their efforts have been cast in the pattern of an outworn tradition. Faced by failure of credit they have proposed only the lending of more money. Stripped of the lure of profit by which to induce our people to follow their false leadership, they have resorted to exhortations, pleading tearfully for restored confidence....The money changers have fled from their high seats in the temple of our civilization. We may now restore that temple to the ancient truths. The measure of the restoration lies in the extent to which we apply social values more noble than mere monetary profit.
