Coveting thy neighbor's...

Most of the things we covet beyond our means are toys - and this applies to everything from Ferrari to ex-wives.

We live in an opulent culture, and perhaps it is better to revel in it than to condemn it as frivolous. Those other people in the unfree world who pretend to view us with moral disdain, might do well to remember that we have achieved this level of luxury by way of political liberty.

The free world may be gross, vulgar and immoral, but that is not something that the slave society can fix.
