by profit i mean money [and the attendant power]. i'm arguing against the 
thesis that money is, or ought to be, the only [or primary] motivator of 
human activity [as in a 'market'].

such a thesis is imo not all that different from a theocracy
that posits religion as the basis and primary motivation of
all activity. both cases serve the purposes of the powerful
poeple within those systems very well.
