Guilt and Interest

Guilt is so powerful to poverty since running out of money
relies on a lack of security in your actions
and in your spending choices. Bad people don’t supply their own choices
security, but the good people are where guilt is well
established and security is quaky, like in New York.

I come to doubt my choices
when it’s security I am missing, believing
my limitless cash would be better
outsourced in foie gras farming or minidisc production.

Credit works on guilt. In trusting you
companies realize guilt and toxic
relationships move large income generation.

Most large amounts of income are founded
not on hard work or even investment,
but on the ability to make a larger amount of people pay
for a product than what that product is actually worth.

Consumers feel guilty therapy when they research how to buy
And need one product,
so they punish themselves by paying too much for it.

Once the transaction is completed, customers feel
better having been punished.
Moreover, a bonus is that consumers
allow themselves to act as the direct
agent of their own punishment.
A conscience and its money are soon parted.

It’s easier to see how guilt works when
how guilt processes are concrete. With money,
this is almost never the case.
When cash becomes an abstract
as it does over the computer –
abstraction made easy with billions
upon billions of interest rates –
then guilt turns into something fuzzy.

Suddenly whoever holds the bag
no longer guilty, but is rich!
We don’t call our earning achievers to task,
only our spenders, so that only when cash
becomes an instrument do we
call it good (philanthropy or self-made)
or bad (embezzlement or laundering).
