Yes; it becomes evident that we are reaching a new Tower of Babel situation, with 'Everybody talking and nobody listening' (Bob Dylan, HARD RAIN IS GONNA FALL).
In mid-sixties I was teaching this song to High School kids, and was reprimanded by my school Principal for doing it. Now that Dylan has 'a Nobel for Literature' I feel a little vindicated. Jesus drove the moneychangers from the Temple with a 'whip of knotted cords'. If the cultural replication for that can be found, perhaps the bank management people can be brought into line.
