Value V2

As capitalism slowly triumphs over all of the ethical and moral values of society it might be worth reexamining the 7 deadly sins in a new social light.

Historical note: moral imperatives were thought so judicious to social cohesion that the public display any of these behaviours was considered punishable by eternal damnation.

Wrath- the military industrial complex sponsors war, counts it as GDP, and loudly protests and laments the terror this encourages in the victims
Gluttony- you are most likely either fat, or rich, or getting there, increasing your desire to consume more is the highest goal of the market
Avarice- personal greed is good and has no consequences, you believe in ceteris paribus despite the logical fallacy
Sloth- you don’t accept that the work behind the global just in time economy is not done by you but by stored hydrocarbons, and worse, you think the hydrocarbons become renewable when we make solar panels from them
Pride- you think your app enables everything to exist, you feel so much better about your superiority that you post it online so that everyone can see and either protest or support your own personal bigotry,
Envy- Encouraged to want what everyone else is, you increase your pride, gluttony, sloth and avarice in order to become the market ideal
Lust- some things remain the same, although worth noting that the externaliti s within the sustainable market for lust extrapolate with the ability to purchase control of another human being

The seven deadly sins are, in a large part, the values espoused in the market democracy. The modern person’s eternal soul does not matter, or is at least no more important, than the number of likes on their most recent post.
