    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.
