This girl couldn't keep her brand new bedroom carpet clean for a few months?

Kinda revealing of what type of girl would want this lifestyle, IMHO.

I think the 'revolution' he led was one of objectification, and not freedom. Although his magazine would frequently write about freedom, we can see here, to no one's surprise, it was really about objectification.

What powers this culture of objectification? The fear of loneliness, and everything that accompanies that fear. This is a most powerful motivator, a most powerful determinant of our psyche.

It is not easy for people to fight a fear that is so large and powerful. For someone to do so, this is a rare and extraordinary feat.

And it leads, in the end, to great loneliness. For him, and for those girls who fall prey to whatever enticements they THINK he's offering them.

It's what makes this story so very incredibly sad.

re: #5 Alouette

That too.

But Madoff made folks think something was there when there really wasn't anything there. Hefner makes people think there is companionship, when there isn't anything there, he makes folks think the void is filled when it is still empty. He has done quite a bit to define the way that people relate to each other in society--and by doing so, he has reinforced the loneliness.

The description of the mansion is that of an empty house.
