Radix malorum est cupiditas

H/T to Dawn... "...the pleasure principle and various pagan philosophies are always going to be with us. And in our consumer culture, making women lonely is what sells. You don't see a married woman with kids blowing her Christmas bonus in the shoe department at Macy's. Advertisers have a vested interest in keeping women single and lonely, because they're the ones that buy impulse purchases." Dawn has hit the nail on the head here. Just as left wing faith in "big-government" has damaged our society, so has right wing faith in "big-business" (aka classical liberalism.) Materialism is one of the pillars of the culture of death. The media bombards people with the message that happiness is derived from living for ones' self, Christ says happiness and perfect freedom come from living for others. This is one of the two great divides between Christianity and Paganism. The other is that, to quote a popular film, "What we do in life, echoes in eternity."

Because we all know that advertisers don't make any money from parents, couples (how much do people spend on weddings), or children! No, none at all!

I think John was being sarcastic.

I have a hard time feeling the proper amount of christian charity towards these women when "whore" keeps popping up in my head whenever I see them. And yes I blame the advertisers equally.

'Free prostitutes' keeps popping up in mind.
