I hate The Secret

March 2, 2007 at 4:47 am (get what you want, money, spiritual)

I am seriously unimpressed by The Secret and it’s accompanying kerfuffle.  It’s just regurgitated, for-the-masses crap.  It’s the McDonald’s drive through of spirituality.

There is enough greed in the world – we don’t need more ‘stuff’.  The way they use the example of wanting to manifest that sportscar is pathetic.  There are people starving needlessly and dying of preventable diseases every day.  Our western culture of ‘give me more’ has created a divided society of haves and have-nots.

The ‘have-nots’ work in factories and sweatshops to make the products that you can buy more of, if only you apply the pinciples of The Secret.

The only secret I can see here is that they are a bunch of greedy individuals out to make a quick buck. 

But “ssssh!”

Don’t tell anyone because it’s a secret!

    I know that this theme is definitely the most prominent throughout the story though when I try to explain how it relates to the characters and how they interact, I seem to hit a road block. thanks…
