Quote by H. L. Mencken
The chief value of money lies in the fact that one lives in a world in which it is overestimated.
This quote suggests that the true importance of money stems from the perception that it is given in society. The value of money goes beyond its actual purchasing power and instead relies on the collective belief that it holds significance. When money is overestimated, meaning people attach more importance to it than it truly holds, it shapes the economic and social fabric of the world we live in. Ultimately, the quote highlights the influence of societal perceptions and the impact they have on the role of money in our lives.
The British have been more up for it than the Americans were, particularly with respect to nudity in the show. In Europe there are adverts that show the breasts, so people are less frightened of that aspect of the show. Americans can withstand incredible violence on TV shows - which, as I come from England and Canada, I find difficult to stomach - but they are more puritanical when it comes to nudity on screen.
