“Medium chill” is maximum wrong

The author declares that he feels he is working too hard, and doesn’t want to work harder. He rationalizes this with a protracted attack on consumer culture because consumerism always leaves everyone wanting more…

But the author of this article isn’t really rejecting consumer culture… What he is in fact advocating is consuming more. Consuming more media. He somehow wants to reject working long hours and to pursue more TV watching…

The American work ethic is how we got to the moon. Consumerism is the reason we won’t go back.

    If consuming more stimulates the economy and produces more wealth and income then working better would give freedom to consume, no?
