affluenza: the american dream



buy shit, cause happiness comes from owning lots of stuff...

Affluenza on Wikipedia

Affluenza is consumption for the sake of consumption. It is the cause of overwork and overspending. It's an addiction to more and a blind faith that more means happier. I do not believe that anyone can opt out of the consumption game, but I do believe that we all can strive to become more frugal, conscious consumers.

Americans are definitely suffering from Affluenza (however any country can 'catch it')...You see those home shows where people move to get MORE space for their ever-expanding some kind of sickness. And these people hardly ever donate, they just hoard.
