The two favorite books of Dr. Lawrence Atop are The Function of the Orgasm by Marxist psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich and Capitalism and Freedom by libertarian economist Milton Friedman. It is rumored that Atop bears a paradoxical tattoo on his scapula that reads “Free Love, Free Market”.

There is a Trappist monastery in Italy that most years generates millions in profit from their exports of cheese and coffins. The monks are also known for their large-scale philanthropic projects. A music journalist from The United States once visited there for the purpose of convincing the monastery to invest in African American owned businesses.
