Why expose mammon?

But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.  For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows (1 Timothy 6:9-10).
Many Christians ask what is the point of exposing mammon. There is a very good reason. He is behind all kinds of evils in the world. He is behind all the evils that most Christians are concerned about such as pornography, abortion, and human trafficking. It must also be noted he works with the spirit of harlotry to entrap the wicked in sin. 
Proverbs 5:22-23 says: "His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.  He shall die without instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray."
The mammonised system has lead to the creation of a society that is full of rampant evils. We live in an age of unprecedented evils, that is more deceptive and has a more "bright" guise. The evils of the modern world are greater in complexity and pervasive. They permeate the whole society.
To fight evil, whether it is abortion, pornography or human trafficking, one cannot neglect or ignore the spirit of mammon. He drives people to do evil, to drown them in destruction and perdition by entrapping in all kinds of sins.
