Unrestrained Greed


Lil Tay was a nine year-old Internet sensation who used foul language while flexing (that is, flaunting her wealth) on Youtube until she reached more than a million followers. Her father pulled the plug because he believed that a child should not engage in such behavior.

Lil Tay’s success showed that a million people approved of her unrestrained greed. They had no problem mocking those who disapproved. Better to be sad in a chauffeur-driven luxury car than happy on a bicycle is one modern Chinese saying. The bicycle rider doesn’t know where his next meal is coming from; the automobile passenger is unconcerned.
