Plastic Piece on Earth

Keep the masses occupied
materially oriented.
Feed them “must see”
“must play” content.

Imply that jobs
are supposed to suck.
Escape through consumption!

Normalize excessive living
as life’s purpose.
Make it unpatriotic (or uncool)
to think otherwise.

Render freedom irrelevant.

    At Thanks Giving, a family friend wished “abundance” to all of her facebook friends. This was nice, but I felt so guilty. I wanted to reply back that just enough would be plenty, but thought that might have been insulting.

    I want to see more of what you really feel!

    bro- GO GO GO GO GO GO GO… what comes around will go around…

    sis – “just enough would be plenty,” I love the idea and phrase.

    I can be much too terse and didactic.

    Strobe your masses
    with the seen and unseen.

    Feed them “must watch”
    “must play” content.

    Imply jobs
    are supposed to suck.

    Live for the weekend.

    Cast excessive living
    as ultimate meaning.

    Declare it unpatriotic or uncool
    to think otherwise.

    Render freedom irrelevant.
