"The excesses of life are reflected with the phrase "don't stop the music"
The evil king contemplates with satisfaction how he has distorted all facets of life, sponsoring excesses and goings-on. Flanked by the muses and surrounded by jesters, the monarch demands that they play the melodies he prefers.
Political parties abuse of their influence to remain in power indefinitely. The energy crisis and runaway inflation have stopped the population's desire for consumption. The majority of the citizens struggle to reach the end of the month.
The new youth has got into promiscuity, trying new sexual experiences but without calculating the consequences. Excesses have also reached sport: athletes want to improve their performance even if it is by taking substances that are harmful to their health and managers waste money everywhere."
