We all live in a society based around consumerism, materialism, mass culture and the endless quest for wealth and goods.
Millions of products pour from the conveyer-belts each day. Just as millions of people head down to their high streets to buy these products each day.
Just as millions of dollars pour into the bank accounts of the corporations and super-rich each day. This obscene and mindless process depletes the
limited resources of this planet day by day, and it cannot go on forever.
I'm not just talking about oil here, but any and every natural resource that is used up every day because it can be transformed into an object of
material, and hence monetary value.
The question I put to you is, how long will this last before we've consumed everything that can possibly be consumed? And what then? Our lives will
be truly empty when this day comes.
Also, just out of curiousity, how many actually people agree with this messed up culture of materialism, consumerism, wealth, celebrity and spiritual
destitution? We all live this life, so some of us must agree with it.
