I Wish I'd Said That

Jonathan Schwarz is always saying stuff I wish I'd said instead of him. I guess that's called envy, which, like greed, is one of the Seven Deadly Sins.

Is anyone surprised and shocked by the moral vacuum at the center of our banks and corporations? At least one of our highest-paid and best-reputed pundits is. Jon comments.

I see a problem with the idea that competition is supposed to be somehow considered good because it brings good results. I just can't bring myself to accept that the ends justifies the means even though it somehow seems to in real life.

The basic principle of beating others at the root of our way of thinking practically guarantees the occurrence of moral calamities as the system operates.
