Not Evidence Again Hedonism

"the claim that we live in a hedonist age is always ridiculous. Are people obsessed with pleasure afraid to call people on the phone? Are people who live only for thrills afraid of global warming? The "hedonists" of today are neurotic and medicated wrecks!"

Yes, that's exactly what hedonists are like. They indeed let the momentary anxiety about a phone call prevent them from making a phone call. "Feels bad, must be bad, thinking over."

Simplistic peasant hedonism creates enormous destruction while failing to advance at all towards its stated goals. That's why it sucks so much.
