Cuddiwch

7.11.05

..cyn i mi ddifetha eich hwyl chi. Mae na grŵp o fobl sy'n gwgu ar 4x4's, bwyd cyflym, teithiau tramor, ar term amdanynt yw New Puritans.
According to the Future Foundation, we are increasingly curbing our enthusiasm for profligate consumption, and health and environment-threatening behaviours. Gone is the guilt-free pleasure-seeker, to be replaced by the model well-meaning citizen, the New Puritan - a tag interchangeable with neo-Cromwellian, if you really want to seal its 17th century origins - who thinks through the consequences of activities previously thought of as pleasurable and invariably elects to live without them. Think of it as the dieticians' favourite adage, 'a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips' given socio-economic resonance.

....

Part of the New Puritan brief is to penalise those who make poor choices on behalf of the rest of society - in this case the gas-guzzling, emissions-generating Montessori wagons that choke our town centres.


Beryg mod i'n un ohonynt.
