ethical choices typically involve sacrifice and (more often than not) they make you "an outsider" . . . but to find a balance within
means listening to what's right as opposed to only what's self-serving
any of us who have been faced with "ethical choices" (i.e. all of us) know that it is a hard road to walk and often making "this choice" is pretty much guaranteeing a life of diminished "returns" and the likelihood of others seeing you as "a loser" or just plain weird
but you have to make them
we are now seeing, live and 3-D, the endgame of a world in which ethics take a back seat to bling and conspicuous consumption
this whole sad affair with Harvey Weiner Stain is a collective gasp that "oh, putting my self-interests ahead of ethics might cause me problems? who knew?" moment
because for sure 95% of the people working long-term in Casperville at the highest levels KNEW . . . and went along with "the game" because Harvey paved his bullshit with GOLD
and they liked his free food and booze and so they sacrificed these women to the greater glory of a career in the spotlight and being part of the "club"
there were privileges to blindness . . . and now there is a cost
but the cost was there all along
and if they weren't forced to say "oh wow I heard 'rumors' but had no idea if they were true or 'fake news", doubtful it would be any different today than 2002
if his movies made money and he kept pouring booze and offering "perks"
people would line up at the snort 'n glut buffet
and keep their eyes focused straight ahead
I got news for y'all -- "the emperor is naked as fuck"
but too many people have been "trained" to see his crown, just the same
and now they are SHOCKED his little dick was out all along
if you look back at all my writings, all my predictions, all my radio appearances over the past 10 years . . . they all say, boiled down, the same thing
we are in an "ethical crisis" and there will one day be a price to pay for avoidance
ethics matter -- a lot
we live in a society that has forgotten how to love -- and that forgetfulness has come, and likely will continue to come, with a steep price
