consumer apocalypse: artifact iconography

In the story "Othello" (William Shakespeare), the villain Iago seduces a trusted African nobleman to betray his faith because of vanity frailties and he does so out of malice and spite and envy. In the film "The Exorcist" (1971), a troubled priest confronts a nefarious demon determined to seduce him into embracing suicide out of lust. In the film "Valentine" (2001), a ruthless serial killer preys on American teenagers during the romance ritual of Valentine's Day out of wrath.

These three stories of envy, lust, and wrath all have something in common --- they prove the frailties of pride and how such ethics frailties give way to social betrayal.

In the ravenous consumer age, where digitized video games such as "Diner Dash" (GameLab) capitalistically reflect the cultural marketability of civilization-anxious Hollywood (USA movies such as "Black Rain" (1989), perhaps contemplating the behavioral relationship between sin and crime reveals species vulnerability.

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
