Ego Trip

A man who has been accustomed to rely on it [the value of the currency] cannot help feeling its degradation as his own. He has identified himself with it for too long and his confidence in it has been like his confidence in himself. Not only is everything visibly shaken during an inflation, nothing remaining certain or unchanged even for an hour, but also each man, as a person, becomes less.

The natural tendency afterwards is to find something which is worth even less than oneself...It is not enough to take over an old contempt and to maintain it at the same level. What is wanted is a dynamic process of humiliation. Something must be treated in such a way that it becomes worth less and less, as the unit of money did during the inflation. And this process must be continued until its object is reduced to a state of utter worthlessness. Then one can throw it away like paper, or repulp it.

-Elias Canetti, Crowds and Power

Also welcome back!

Your current quote cannily explains many things about the current budget sparring going on in Washington.

The bureaucrats & politicians (is there a difference anymore?) feel like they have no real economic/fiscal/monetary choices open to them -- real reform is unthinkable -- so the debate over budgetary minutiae and political scapegoats becomes intense.

EGO TRIP indeed. Anyone here ever read the George Orwell short story entitled SHOOTING AN ELEPHANT? To me it is the best parable that explains EMPIRE. Its almost as if EMPIRE boils down to a collective ego. Of course Orwell wrote about the BRITISH EMPIRE, but there is an American one now.

When you think about all the peer group propaganda that we baby-boomers were subjected to from young children in public schools. The DEMOCRATIC YOUTH movement of sorts. Look at your wallet and those green pieces of paper and think how much ego and "human condition" makes up the buck ... If you hand any American a blank check they will fill it up with as many 9s as they can possibly fit in the $$ amount space. EMPIRE is as much about IMAGE as it is about EMPIRE.

The first paragraph of EGO TRIP sums up the US national monetary addiction quite well. As any addict knows you deny, deny, deny until you die!

The film story was created by the team, through which were far more women than Guys. They resolved, that film can be centered on a bit women. But it absolutely was not only their impression. They investigated little women, who like Inside of Out Game titles one of the most, and located out, that eleven to 17 girls are more attuned to expressions and feelings than others. This is actually the primary reason, why the most crucial character Within this cartoon film is minor, eleven years previous, Woman. When very little ladies see, that there's a girl inside the film, who's got a similar age, the like it Increasingly more. So, we think, that Inside Out Video games is going to be appreciated remarkably! The spending plan of Inside Out was $175 million, but authors commercialized far more, than they had invested! They've received $856.1 million from product sales in all around the planet. From that we will recognize, that this film attracts each and every folks, it does not matter he or she will be girl, or boy, teen or experienced. Those individuals like Inside Out Games too, of course. The movie has bought these a fascinating story, that non ofit's watchers will stay indifferent after looking at it. In it we can easily begin to see the emotions, that have bought Every person.
