Why do we anthropomorphize nature, but not other aspects of life?
Why not talk about Father Economy? When you get laid off : “oh, but that’s just Father Economy’s way of saying that you need a change in your life”Or when you get a raise: “See, Father Economy loves all his children”
or Uncle Politics. When your preferred candidate gets elected: “ah yes, isn’t it wonderful how Uncle Politics always make sure that everything turns out as it should be?” Or when the wrong candidate gets elected: “but that’s not how Uncle Politics intended it to be! You must stop voting for this party because you are killing our beloved Uncle Politics!”
