One problem with the seven deadly sins is that at crisscross exists between gluttony and greed. The Third Horseman, Famine, holds scales – which represent power imbalance. Patricia Arquette recently made news when she spoke about gender inequality, during her Oscar speech. Many noted the problem with a rich person talking about financial inequality, but when you look at the open checkbook of TV advertisement and how she became rich – you realize many poor people are forced to pay her salary because advertising dollars get passed along to the consumer. Oprah became one of the richest people in the word through this system.
The Jewish dominance of the media is the one reason I used the term. “Jewish socialism” in an earlier post. I allude to Mel Gibson’s anti-Semitic remarks, in one chapter, of my novel, but his and Charlie Sheens complaints about Jewish power in the media made me rethink on the issue. The Jewish big shots in liberal Hollywood made me come with the term, “Jewish Socialism.” Jews in Hollywood obviously don’t have a complete media monopoly, but it may be enough to be troubling.
I need to decide on my demon of gluttony, but I’m stumped. The two above do not fit my regional theme and the greed-gluttony crisscross is confounding me some. I’m leaning toward using the Third Horseman; since it symbolizes greed and gluttony at the same time. I may skip the regional link, for this one.<!–
