Pimpin spirituality @ 12:34 am

Some editorial
( in a fashion magazine )
With the decline of the economy
People are turning to religeon

My economist friend retorts:
of course!
When people have no money and can no longer buy things
They'll say ' oh, we don't like those things of the material world... The spiritual is so much better...'
! people are so predictable!

I laughed
We all did
But on the train ride home
I had to think of the men I'm attracted to
--materialists all
More sensualists than horders
(though it is the horders who are more likely to attempt to horde me)

And how I've always been a bit repulsed by the men who try and turn me on with "spirituality"

Maybe for that reason
Not the love of the devine
But for the same reason homeless people are always talking about God
: they're losers in that realm and try a slight of hand in the etherial realm where things might not be so apparent

But it is, Blanch... It is

This is an example of a well known phenomenon in psychology: reduction of cognitive dissonance. http://www.mindhacks.com/blog/2007/12/cognitive_dissonance.html
