Many individuals would look upon this idea with disdain and disbelief, yet only a few moments of reflection could reveal the truth of every person to every person. Is it not reflected in popular culture, entertainment, advertising, the ideas that wealth and power buy everything that relates to happiness and freedom. Are we not encouraged by beautiful people to fill our hearts with the things that these beautiful people are holding, touching, drinking, buying?
How many gadgets and toys do (you) have? And how many justifications to go with them? And what scheme best props up these whims? Credit! Money is the mirage on the horizon, dancing before your starving eyes. Fake tits, cuff links, nice cars, expensive dinners, private jets, the glory goes to the mob and Scarface T-shirts pour in and then out of the malls. Practice talking like a gangster. Does pop culture just take the worst example of societal ills and sell them to suburbia? Suffering is for sale and is great entertainment! It's also quite funny too, anyone remember the TV show cops? Or “the Faces of Death” the cult favorite of the 80's.
Our current suffering as a society is the funniest of all now as we have a sadistic clown as the leader of our country, and all his little lesser imps and demons from the woodwork surface in the streets and state legislatures to wreck havoc on the hive mind, doubtless in every way sponsored by our best worst enemy, the revived, not so new, not so improved red menace. Money is the rule, money is thy god and thy weapons shall bring forth thy multitudes, and thy multitudes shall multiply in disarray and thy armies will replenish unending until the end of all. And what weapon shall touch thee in thy ivory tower?
