After all, you’re right, none of them are truly valuable, at least not like Simon Cowell or Rush Limbaugh, anyway … Measuring people by how much numerical wealth they produce is a kind of psychopathy … That kind of thinking is spreading, because our pop culture priests have succeeded in filling the population with shame and nervous self-loathing to the point where they think of anyone who isn’t an employer as a parasite, and anyone who isn’t rich and famous, or trying to be, as a loser.” [Rolling Stone]
