On the heels of the last post, I thought I should post this:
Today I went looking through an adbusters magazine for philosophy class. Man, that magazine is incredible. The imagery used to prove a point, to show you something. The one I looked at was called "look right" and all about how consumerism is basically taking over the world. And over and over people in it were asking the question: is this all making us happy? or are we just lonelier than we have ever been? Don't get me wrong - I am sucker for the corporate machine just as much as the next guy. I work for Starbucks after all. Yet, I wonder - will I give myself over to all of this consumerism?
I was left with this question:
“What remains of our capacity to reinvent the world?"
