Damn consumerism

As a youth, I was certainly guilty of being interested in shopping and in searching for bargains. Even as a concerned person who cared about the welfare of others, I was also still a teenager, in somewhat typical fashion.

That was a long time ago. It is utterly unbelievable that adults do not see the moral folly of materialism, consumerism, and capitalism. We cannot possibly battle the ecological and sociological crises of our world until we all do.

Inspired. Just Inspired.

Yes, and since when has mutiliation become prevention. Maybe it ought to be added to Orwell's list?
