Forsman, TheresaJulie Schor's The Overspent American by Theresa Forsman - 1998
How does buying a BMW, a Rolex, or a golf club membership affect your life and others' lives? You might say the car is safe transportation, the watch is a reliable timepiece -- one you've wanted since graduate school and that you've earned with all those late nights at the office. You might see the golf club membership as necessary for someone in your line of work, where deals are done on Saturdays at the 19th hole. Few of us come right out and admit, even to ourselves, that what we're buying is status. And few of us have calculated the true price of such status symbols.
Frank, Lawrence KMental Health and Ethical Conduct by Lawrence K Frank - 1975
Today our new knowledge of personality development makes it possible to revise some ancient teachings. Some remarkable changes have already taken place--as for example in the criminal law. For generations we have believed, and the lawyers and the courts have maintained, that if an individual violated the law, stole property, damaged the property of others, or injured another not accidentally, or in any way infringed upon the rights of others, he was to be caught if possible, tried and, if convicted, punished.
