h&f 0062 The Dark Symptoms of Our Consumer Culture

No need for a lot of words here as the explanation for the death of a worker at Wal-Mart in Long Island, NY is as simple as it is painful. We want. We want. We want.

Even in the midst of our crisis, we don’t cut back.  We want.  We can hardly blame the bankers and big corporate as long as we are willing accomplices/dupes.

Among others, this death is the darkest and most logical of symptoms.

Listen to the comments in the video here and you will see that we are far from learning or a change in behaviour despite this consequence.
