I had an interesting discussion about this with a reader recently.
I have a tendency to throw random debates out there, because often it’s more than just a couple of randoms who have an opinion … or who’d enjoy discussing a topic.
It does seem to me that a new enemy has been created in “the greedy corporation” (and individuals), in place of the previous collectively disliked communism. With communism “on the way out”, does anti-greed just fill the void of a politically correct common enemy ?
And lest we not forget BOTH greed and beauty are SUBJECTIVE interpretations of the facts. Beauty for instance they say is “in the eye of the beholder”. Also a $50000 gold watch would be seen by many as greedy, but very wealthy people can own several. Within that we probably shouldn’t forget the craftsmen, businesses and workers who make their living from making things like gold watches … or indeed aeroplanes which cost far more than gold watches … challenging to stay objective on things like greed and beauty !
For me repetition of things can make them boring. Variety is the spice of life they say 🙂 … Too much of a good thing … etc, sure there’s plenty more clichés … So I’m not convinced that greed is the only thing …
Is Greed The Only Thing That Makes Beauty Boring ?
