Mountebank Roy Masters once said on the radio that coming out the bathroom he decided not to switch off the light but then realised that this was a serious omission because it was selfish. Pause to reflect on this convoluted bizarre harebrained ratiocination. If you do not turn off the light in your own house and consequently face a higher electricity bill you are being selfish! No, I can't figure it out either. Now if it were your nextdoor neighbour's light that you left on that could at a stretch be characterised as selfishness at least in the received meaning of that word but your own light?! Such is the mad inverted thinking of the religious who afflicted with misplaced guilt seek to preselitize their own neurosis cum faith.
