Via Heritage, a great spoof on our self-esteem culture from SNL.


In the midst of humor, SNL struck on a sad reality for much of American culture. Faux-celebrities are placed on pedestals, while real success is shot down. As we’re seeing in politics today, true measures of economic success—such as opening a business and making a profit—have become something of a scarlet letter rather than a badge of honor. Capitalism and the free market are under assault, politicians are fomenting class warfare, and a target has been drawn squarely on our country’s job creators.
