|One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star. -Nietzsche|
January 30, 2012
Like a massively inefficient economy, most of what we value is hyped pump and dump, bubbles about to burst, shoddy goods, and innovated obsolescence. When not distracting with self-important insistence on being the central hub, it is crowding out culture, meaning, good taste, sensibilities, and standards of quality.
There are no Superbowl commercials for fresh air, wild salmon, sleeping, hiking, or Seneca's Epistles. Everyone healthy already knows what to do. But to get money from people by convincing them to harm themselves by consuming junk, that takes an investment of millions in advertising before they respond as cued.
Our time is wasted valuing what has no value. This is more vulgar than noble poverty.
