Does the Root of all Evil Always Sprout?
At AMERICAblog, John poses a big and important question. What is the attitude on the left about money? Having it, spending it, enjoying it. I am fairly conflicted on this, both in my thoughts and behavior. Mostly it feels like any rigid position is fraught with hypocrisy. I can say that I am regularly--though not too often--glad I don't have more money, so I don't have to think any more about how best to use it than I already do. How messed up is that?
Have a read of some of the conversation there, and let me know your thoughts.
