Chapter 9

Speaking of scales of badness:

It is clear to anyone who has been able to watch the decades go by, that modern culture is in a constant race to become ever more crude, brutal, dark and obscene.

To those of you who are young, you think that that's normal because it's the only world you've ever seen. To those of you who are older but dumb, you think it's normal because you haven't noticed; your environment is always normal.

Everything happens for a reason, and the reason for this progressively increasing brutality is that we have progressively gained so much comfort, so much luxury, and so much security, that we have to actually manufacture badness in order to achieve a balanced emotional diet.


And that being the case, it strongly influences against the world ever being a kind and just place. People wouldn't like it. There would be insufficient stimuli.
