Happiness Deferred

"The bad guys pay better. I have a family to take care of. Two country club memberships. Three cars. Las vegas vacations. And fragile self-esteem. What can I do?"


"By some more nice clothes and attend more church/temple activities? Perhaps more jewelry for your stay-at-home 'moral' compass?"

Unknowing soldiers of the Deception Machine. They were joking of course. But the thread of truth, cannot be denied. Stealing just a bit from each of a very large group can escape detection for a remarkably long time. When this ill-gotten wealth is put to use in the generally dark time that almost inevitably follows, not so much.

"Why is it that the only 'good' jobs left are the ones where lower level employees take the hit for the misdeeds of those higher up?"

"Rob banks, its where the money is? Maybe was. I suspect you get my drift."
