“For the upper middle class in the US, particularly younger people, things are often materially comfortable. And there’s also often a great sadness and emptiness…There’s a particular ethos in US culture especially in entertainment and marketing culture that very much appeals to individuals. You don’t have to be devoted or subservient anything else.  There is no larger good than your own and your own happiness…. We all worship and all have a religious impulse… but the myth that were worship nothing… simply sets us up to give ourselves something different. For instance pleasure, drugs, or the idea of having a lot of money and being
able to buy nice stuff.”
