The Wages of Sin: America's Dilemma of Profit against Humanity

Synopsis

This is an incisive book about what has gone wrong with the social fabric of American society. Huer postulates two models of society: one that pursues profit and self-interest, and the other that cherishes community values. Huer holds that the two types of ethics cannot coexist in society. One prominent result of the current dominance of the profit-driven model of behavior is that American society increasingly substitutes reality with illusion, happiness with pleasure, strength with brute force--highlighted by the now-obsessive demands for entertainment and overconsumption, and frequent calls for warlike ventures. The Wages of Sin is a social critique that gives historical insights and suggests remedies to the current societal malaise.
