At this point, for the “sins of envy, greed and avarice”, we have encountered nested forms along two intersecting axes in Menninger’s apparently Christian frame.
The horizontal axis follows:
Lawessential(sins of envy, greed and avarice(psychology of covetousness))
The thinkgroup vertical axis is:
“The ungodly consolations of a complex life or idolatry of money(sins of envy, greed and avarice(the consciencelacking of self-aggrandizement))
The alternate thinkdivine vertical axis – we can only guess – might be:
Thinkdivine of the simple life (the virtue of fairness(the consciencefree of self-reliance)
And this thinkdivine would change the horizontal axis – we can only guess –to:
Lawessential(the virtue of fairness(the psychology of personal ownership and open opportunity)
Is that not odd?
The “psychology” of the disposition sounds like “natural rights”.
