Cakes and Ale

Graf von Straf Hinderberg has an interesting, if somewhat morose, post on modernity and the fairy gold of materialism. Showing that the King James Bible has a beautiful turn of phrase, von Straf links to Ephesians 6:12:
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
The quote attributes our lethargy to malign influences from our leaders; I'm afraid that my answer to the phenomenon is rather different.
After a time, you may find that having a thing is not so pleasant as wanting it. It is not logical, but it is often true.
As spoken by Spock in Amok Time.
