What do you think of our society? I know I love it too. Shopping is extremely accessible, right. Whether we’re buying a Beyoncé’s concert tickets online, la prairie eye cream, Chinese take out delivery, or an ASOS discounted jeans on your iPhone, shopping is a huge part of our everyday lives. Not to mention there’re many “green” organizations out there promoting their messages, and we’ve started to care about how we shop and what we eat. Suddenly, our society doesn’t seem so bad after all. But is it really?

“Is it that we collectively thought Steve Jobs was a great man, even when we knew he made billions off the backs of children? Or maybe it’s that it feels like all our heroes are counterfeit? The world itself just one big hoax, spamming each other with our burning commentary bullshit, masquerading this insight; our social media faking this intimacy. Or is it that we voted for this? Not with our rigged elections, but with our things, our property, our money. I’m not saying anything new, we all know why we do this, not because Hunger Games books makes us happy, but because we want to be sedated. Because it’s painful not to pretend, because we’re cowards. Fuck society.” Said Elliot from Mr. Robot.

Let’s face it. We’re all digital criminal. Would you not wear fur for a good photo opportunity to promote how fabulous your lives are better than others? Would you not eat meat, wear fur, buy leather goods, apply an expensive eye cream without animal testing, or care for a purchased Gucci packaging? It’s just cannibalism, one way or another. Sure. There are exceptions. Though far from many.

A little bit of a Carrie moment here – So I couldn’t help but wonder what were those hypocrites yada about.
