Wilson & Herrnstein write in “Crime and Human Nature” of deferring immediate pleasures for defrayed rewards: “And if [this] book is read, it will be by persons who think, rightly or wrongly, that they will obtain some intellectual or educational benefit from doing so, and not by persons who think that reading it is more fun than going to the movies.” Maybe agnostic is right about everything being better in the 80s (1985 more specifically), because I’m not aware of anything in theaters worth seeing. That might just reveal my ignorance of the finer selections of present culture.
