Out with the Old, In with the New

As the old morality recedes, the new PC morality replaces it, with a vengeance.

Gone are any serious concerns about pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath and sloth. In the current Presidential election, both contenders each exhibited at least four of the seven deadly sins. Nobody cares.

Today the seven deadly sins are racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamaphobia, transphobia, climate change denial, and fat shaming.

The penalties for transgression are pretty much the same as ever: ostracism, loss of livelihood, expulsion from polite society, loss of friends, etc. Fortunately, burning at the stake has not yet been brought back into vogue.

    I”ve often wondered how one knows if one is slothful. Is there an energy test to determine just how little you do is deemed being a sloth.

    You know if you’re slothful or not.
