behaviour (we spend more time on consumerist activities) but also our thinking (our aspirations, attitudes and worldviews). [...] What is wrong with consumerism? There is not necessarily anything morally wrong in buying and selling things, nar even in promoting them. But the extreme form of consumerism that now dominates the Western world has a number of unpleasant and even potentially dangerous characteristics. 1 -?- It's intrusive (aufdringlich) Advertising, selling and product placement is simply an annoying imposition on one's peace and personal space. Advertising is everywhere, and spoils many experiences and pleasant views. It is like having a stranger following you and shouting at you for several hours a day. 2 -?- it is manipulative Both advertising and consumerism itself try to manipulate us into adopting a particular view of how we should live rather than letting us decide for ourselves. [...] Modern advertising is not just about telling people about a product. It is now about creating wants and needs that we might not have had before seeing the advertisement. In other words, it creates false desires and needs in us by manipulating us. [...] 3 -?- It does not meet our needs Some people may believe that consumerism meets all their desires in life. But for an increasing number of people it does not. It creates impossible aspirations - quite simply, the principles it is based on make it a logical impossibility that it will make us happy. If the idea of consumerism is to continually create new needs in people and make them consume more, this will result in us constantly chasing after a carrot on a stick. [...] Consumerism does not just restrict our choices. It is also a significant influence on our perspectives on the world. For example, if we are spending much of our time and energy seeking the next product or activity to consume, then we have less time and enthusiasm to learn about the world or broaden our horizons. Also, consumerism is unlikely to prompt us to question important things such as the availability of the resources that maintain our lifestyles, the capacity of the planet to hold the waste we generate or the vulnerability of the centralized, import- reliant food supply systems we currently use. [...] and lives 4 -?- It restricts our choices In its broadest sense, consumerism can be seen as a particular view of the good life'- a view that says life is better when you have more 'market goods' (products, services and activities). [...] There are, however, many other ways we could live (e.g. simple living or a focus on time and people rather than possessions), some of which people may feel are more appropriate for them. [...] "angemessen" 5 -?- It affects our world views and characters 6-?- It is unsustainable We live on a planet with a rapidly growing population (6.7 billion people and counting) and a finite set of natural resources for this population to consume. [...] We are already living way beyond the planet's limits. Given this worrying situation, it seems obvious that we can't continue with the ever-increasing levels of consumption demanded by consumerism without major consequences. In fact, what we urgently need is precisely the opposite of consumerism - namely, a philosophy that urges us to reduce our levels of consumption.
