frailty & idealization
Posted in the Religion Forum

The Christian Bible suggests that there are about seven cardinal sins, and human beings often try to prioritize human foolishness.
Many would agree that everyday sins such as cheating on taxes, abusing alcohol, and distributing narcotics to addicts comprise human foolishness that is indeed indicative of species frailty.
What is not as important as understanding the motivation for sin is understanding the motivation for self-improvement.
These sorts of casual spiritual considerations illuminate the allusory value of sin-themed Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Hellraiser" (1987).
Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

Cheating on taxes (lust): "Greedy" (1994)
Abusing alcohol (sloth): "Drunks" (1995)
Dealing drugs (gluttony): "Traffic" (2000)
How can we prioritize, rank, and relate these three types of characterized sins?
Lust is obviously the most dangerous (i.e., AIDS). Sloth destroys human diligence (i.e., City Hall). Drug dealing harms communities (i.e., prostitution).
What if a college fraternity plays the movie "Whore" (1991) without due prudence?
While these sins are related by economic qualities, they must be treated uniquely because each sin feeds the other intellectually.
This reflects the social value of "Hellraiser" (1987).
