The cultural manipulations by the capitalist overlords has born abundant fruit!
A mindless class of materialistic consumers. Social engineering as complete and tangible as any nuts and bolts construction.
In a surreal way; a thing of beauty or perhaps horror in it's ease of execution.
Planned obsolescence and hype married into a capitalist wet dream and as a producer of a product, I share in the blame.
God help us!

While I agree wholeheartedly with most of this,
God help us???
God started this. First you have the BS about Baby Jesus and the manger and the Three Kings bringing presents, which somehow morphed into Santa Claus
(the secular God, who can see everything you do, knows when you've been bad or good, and rewards or punishes appropriately), which morphs into
shopping as a way of showing 'love', which morphed into 'having to buy presents for 30 people', which conveniently paves the way for credit cards,
eternal debt and big banks making a fortune on your sorry teevee-brainwashed ass, slave labor making plastic pumpkins and Furbys in China, which led
to pollution so obscene that the air is unfit to breathe there, and the water is running out.
All so some fool in America, the land of the brave and free except when they're not, can buy some new toy that's been psychologically imprinted on
their brains as 'I NEED THIS' by those perfect minions of the devil, the advertisers, and the Big Screen TeeVee you got cheap (so you thought) at
Walmart's WWF game last year.
How come you haven't decided to boycott materialism and 'holidays' completely yet?
Just have a nice dinner, spend the time with people you really like and respect instead of most of those relatives you can't stand, and string some
pretty lights to cheer you up when it gets dark early.
The End. No need for the rest of it, no need at all.
PS: Plastic Christmas Trees? Seriously?????? Whaddaya gonna do with the old 'bad shape' one? Send it to the landfill? Along with millions of
others? What part of this is not insane?
