Increased attention for Affluenza by the fall Ethan Couch
Affluenza is probably the most popular term for misconduct caused by avaritic infestations. This was shown only a few years ago in the case of Ethan Couch, 16 years old and completely drunk, killing four people with his car (further information on the case and the events of the last days on the sides of the FAZ). The Avaroid Institute aims to increase attention for this disease in the coming year, but at the same time it is important to point out that people who are affected are largely responsible for the lack of psycho-hygiene. Yet our society needs conventions in dealing with money, wealth and greed. We can’t leave the affected people alone! Next year we want to reach the first stages of the establishment of general psychohygienic standards in order to carry out the work of physiological hygiene begun by Ignaz Semmelweis. With this contribution, we are leaving the year 2015 and look forward to the coming year 2016!
Anyone who wants to read further on the current discussion about the Affluenza has yet to resort to articles from the english-speaking world. Have fun while reading!
The film world has also approached the topic. If you are looking for a fictional story about the quiet days, here is the trailer for the film “Affluenza” by Kevin Asch:
