    One Of Them

    I Am a Greedy Consumerist

    When faced with its evidence (and you can't turn anywhere without seeing it), greed and consumerism disgust me. Advertising and money-centric manipulations in partiular leave more than just a bad taste in my mouth. It really puts me off my lunch. But, I guess maybe as a side...

    Modern mass culture, aimed at the 'consumer',

    the civilisation of prosthetics, is crippling people's souls, setting up barriers between man and the crucial questions of his existence, his consciousness of himself as a spiritual being. Andrei Tarkovsky

    Getting the Sheep to Buy Things They Don't Need.

    Sounds like Capitalism to me. Like pigs at the slop-heap... What is even worse, is those that knowingly support such waste.

    Vile

    I find greed and consumerism just about the most vile things on earth. In a world where so many people barely have what they need to survive, here are some select few who have everything and complain that it isn't enough. It's despicable. I believe many of the ones who have...

    No matter how deep your potential topic is, liberal use of the the word like... Sucks the soul out of your post. Example: "I feel like ending it all, LIKE for real" see?
