The ALL Consuming Self!

“Our enormously productive economy demands that we make consumption our way of life, that we convert the buying and use of goods into rituals, that we seek our spiritual satisfaction and our ego satisfaction in consumption. We need things consumed, burned up, worn out, replaced and discarded at an ever-increasing rate”.

~Victor Lebow 1955

I must admit I have always in some way admired those who set their mind on something and then accomplish it! Leaving me both fascinated and appalled, in the three part documentary linked here, The Century of the Self (The All Consuming Self) you will be treated with just how consumer capitalism accomplished this amazing feat of enslaving humanity, leading to our Extinction Crisis, Social Justice Crisis and every manner of Eological Crisis including Climate Change.
