Meaninglessness of Modern Life: SEX (video)

King Komodo 1/16/13; Seth Auberon, Crystal Quintero, Ashley Wells (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly

The excellent six-part series Decadence: Meaninglessness of Modern Life examines modernity and considers the impact of our relentlessly changing world upon key values that used to make Western society something to aspire to.

Each episode is packed with pearls of wisdom and a lot of food for thought. Concepts are well presented with rational arguments and good examples -- helping to justify the often disappointing new realities it reveals.

After consideration, even if this series were only half-true, we can hardly afford inaction. Join Host Pria Viswalingam for the new documentary series as he considers whether we are now completely bogged down in a mire of meaningless self-indulgence, asking whether we really need:
  • iPods
  • plasma screen TVs
  • Brazilian waxes
  • self-navigating 4WDs to achieve "happiness."
He asks, IF family incomes are higher than ever before in the Western world -- with property values soaring -- and IF conspicuous consumption and material wealth have never been so evident, why are we so unhappy?
