Prostituting ourselves to the highest bidder

Dear Editor:

No one really likes sucking on the slimy underbelly of the reptilian Wall Street Gekko, but as long as we’re trapped in this contrived, manipulated monopoly game, we’re all forced to whore ourselves out in one way or another.

Yes, we’re outgrowing this corrupt and obsolete monetary system, but not nearly fast enough. (See a “resource-based-economy.”) So, until we manage to crawl out of the pond scum and evolve to a higher level, I suppose we’ll have to keep that red light burning, lie back and (pretend to) enjoy it.

At least we’re high-class whores in Aspen. If that’s any consolation.

Steve Saylor
