Humm…reminds me of the classic pain/pleasure brain circuits. Short-term vs long-term.
It seems indeed we also have a short-term 2-nanosecond timespan brain, if we follow what the media portrays. I suspect courts did not help at all, if not hasten, this phenomenon.
Let’s face it. If you are irresponsible, invest no effort, and still find a way to cash in on it because some stupid judge pities you, creates jurisprudence, and becomes your one-way ticket to easy money, you are wiser than the system and you will be nicely rewarded for that. I once heard that lazy people are SOMETIMES more brilliant than the average Joe.
It seems the court reward the guys with the greatest GIFT OF GAB, not strenght, valor, integrity or fairness. Should that be so, then to the best greasy-lipped silver-tongue the spoils!
Whoops! That’s the current state of affairs! Pathetic!
Survival of the ‘weaselest’.
We’re far from the founding fathers strenghts.
Some jerk once said that principles never filled his refrigerators, but selling and lying could easily do it. What’s worse is that the media tell me he was not that far off track.
