One of Ghost’s Nameless Ghouls has slammed the culture of greed in modern society – saying the concept of happiness has been lost as a result.
He says there’s been a change in attitudes over recent years, with people now judging success by how much cash they can earn.
He tells Kerrang (via Blabbermouth): “People are most content when they have a purpose – but most people think their purpose is to be a millionaire. They can’t be content until they’re their own boss at the top of the Trump building.”
He continues: “25 years ago, people were content being a carpenter. But after the internet, people can now create an app in five minutes and sell it for $5m. That’s the career choices now.
“Either that or you can play poker – that’ll make you rich. Or you can photograph your tits and that’ll make you extremely rich. The whole concept of happiness is fucking skewed.“
