Here´s some inspiration from Pinochio, particulary the part of Pleasure Island. A good metaphor for addictions and why a life of indulgence never pays out.
From the blog, http://philromo.com/blog/2017/6/29/pinocchio-a-philosophical-dissertation.
"The psychology of Pinocchio
Collodi and Disney are expressing a metaphor for moral corruption and hedonism in the role of Pleasure Island. The implication that a lack of self discipline and a constant impulsive pursuit of vice will eventually lead to slavery.
On Pleasure Island the young boys are encouraged to engage in all manner of excess. Free food, games, beer, cigars and the wanton destruction of property. All the while, none of the boys on the island question what the penalty for such behavior could possibly be.
The young boys of Pleasure Island soon discover that they are transforming into donkeys. The Coachman has lured them onto the island to get free labor to work as beasts of burden. Note the shadowy black figures that assist in the boys slavery.
It is a sobering display of cruelty. A vision of hell captured on film under the guise of a children's movie.
The writers and animators are not merely portraying a fantasy scenario. This is what happens to humans throughout history. People are marginalized, targeted, raped, murdered and enslaved over and over again through the ages. This is the story of human history, the dark backstory to human achievements brought on by the blood, tears and toil of untold millions.
More so than this, people still experience this form of mental slavery today. Those that engage in a life of constant hedonism and selfishness early in their lives wind up enslaved later on in life. They wind up enslaved to an ideology, a job they despise or a loveless marriage (sold to the salt mines, sold to the circus) and spout someone else's opinion like a braying jackass incapable of their own thoughts. You see them every day on social media. They share and repost whatever propaganda that they have bought into and have no original ideas to back up their mindless meandering.
Then they call it "being an individual".
Remember this, meditate on this and contemplate it for the next several weeks. If you're doing it right, the quote should terrify you and change you and the way you see the world."
Most welcome Bro
Man the amount of work you put into this is really remarkable, I think I speak for everyone here when I say we appreciate it. Thank you!
I'm an Uruk - Hai !!
