    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...

    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

    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...
