The report came out today that consumer spending was down for the month of November, so all the stock markets went down as investors get skittish, which basically shows you that if YOU ARE NOT BUYING SHIT, THEN RICH PEOPLE FREAK THE FUCK OUT!!!
We know this. We have grown up with this. We have lived with this all our lives: the simple fact is that each individual American exists solely for the purpose to consume.
We buy buy buy what they sell sell sell ... and when we don't buy THEY have a conniption fit.
Every aspect of our existence is geared toward this consumer economy.
The Matrix hit it on the head: we exist to feed their them while we live in a fantasy world.
