| ||I see all this potential, and I see squandering... an entire
generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars.
Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we
can buy s*** we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man.
No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our
Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've
all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be
millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're
slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off. |
-Tyler Durden, Fight Club
this what capitalism breeds in us? This soul-sucking consumerism? How
can a capitalistic economy glorify God in our modern day and age where
so much in our economy is centered around entertainment and pleasure?
*edit*: I realize that this may come off as me wondering if we should
all be socialists. I have way more problems with socialism and
understand the Biblical basis for an essentially capitalistic society,
but I am wondering about the current incarnation we see in American
society (heck, all over the world it's like this-- it's one of the
major reasons people want to come to America.)
