    I Am a Greedy Consumerist

    I Rescued Myself From Consumerism And Debt

    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

    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...
