Today's Ramble - 10/13/06
Today's thought centers around our most precious resource - time. As our society becomes more affluent, many of us find that we have more money than time. So, we hire nannies to care for our children. We hire gardeners to tend our gardens. We even hire personal shoppers to pick out and purchase gifts for our friends and family. This implies to me that money has become our master. As the old saying goes, "money makes a better slave than master" (or something like that). What could be more telling than these societal trends that our materialistic, consumer-driven society has become our collective master. It is time we stop this madness one individual at a time.
