The almighty dollar, that great object of universal devotion throughout our land, seems to have no genuine devotees in these peculiar villages; and unless some of its missionaries penetrate there, and erect banking houses and other pious shrines, there is no knowing how long the inhabitants may remain in their present state of contented poverty.

Washington Irving, "The Creole Village" The Knickerbocker (November 1836).

It was a tragedy, yet it did not feel like an accident. All those people were there, lined up in the cold and darkness, because of sophisticated marketing forces that have produced this day now called Black Friday. They were engaging in early-morning shopping as contact sport. American business has long excelled at creating a sense of shortage amid abundance, an anxiety that one must act now or miss out. . .

So uhhhh Eric does this mean that we can expect no Christmas present from you?

Greed is A god, sure enough all forms of materialism are gods, not inherently evil just blinding.

We walk the earth to have eyes opened, it is the difference between the god worshiped and the God omnipresent.
