    I Rescued Myself From Consumerism And Debt

    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.

    One Of Them

    I think it a true shame how much wealthy people are worshiped and allowed to run our society based on nothing more than their "success." No matter how many people they may have screwed over, ripped off and threw under a bus on to get there, we praise them nonetheless because they...
