Moderns wrongly equate temptation with individual choice. That is, what tempts us, and our ability to obtain and fulfill the temptation, is free choice.

Yet, as the previous post emphasized, we must go a step further and realize that all temptations and desires have been reduced to a lowest-common-denominator, the great equality so that all individuals may be tempted and "freely" chose the same thing.

So what is this greatest of idiotic ironies? Moderns claim the ultimate celebration of our unique individuality is to subsume all that makes us unique and to simply desire the same things that are common to all animal forms of life do: sex, food, comfort.

What then makes humans special? Only that we get more of those things than the other animals. What base foolishness.
