|Capitalism as a threat to humanity||“It's the worst thing ever and that's a complete commercialism and the victory of capitalism over humanity. So I'm very negative about it.” (Male nephrologist, 50s, Europe)|
“If you start with compensation and if you start money with different things, the end of the road will be commercialization—will be money and will be I give you kidney and you give me a house, a car—I don't know—sex, money—what you want? So forget it. You don't need to compensate the donors. If you compensate—if you go on these game[s], and you start compensation with different things, at the end of the road, it's money. It's money—it’s commercialization.” (Male nephrologist, 50s, Europe)
