I grew up in Kansas City,» Altman says, «during the prohibition era of speakeasies, gangsters and lawlessness.

Like most of western Christian civilisation, we feel it’s fine if we’re comfortable and, if the rest of the world isn’t, then that’s their problem. We’re not generous. And the idea of paying some chief executive $40m a year is just obscene. I don’t deny it’s nice to have silk sheets or whatever, but we live in a deeply unequal society and our luxury is both excessive and wasteful
En Moebius (me encantó; no se pierdan el video).
