    Hmmm. Doesn’t look like Obama.

    And right after finishing this, the cartoonist went off to buy the newest iPhone. I think we’re safe.

    Sadly, that’s the fuckin’ truth, but consuptionism is a modern religion, so “don’t” worry, western civilization will stay “alive”, and “healthy”.

    It is the fucking truth, but there’s nothing sad about it. If everyone had just been happy with what they’d got, we would never have developed the knowledge and technology that is necessary for e.g. current medicine. Do you know what the field of medicine was like, say, before The Evil Of Industrialization took hold? Wanna go back to that? Didn’t think so.

    I don’t think that buying iPhone v. 11, just because you only have that old and passé one v.10, or because everyone already has one, isn’t the thing that make people progress.

    This wouldn’t be a threat to western civilization this would be a threat to all civilization.
    Not being content drives innovation and success in both the individual and the group.
    Luminary already said it best so I will just leave it at that and thumbs up him.

    There’s a difference between being content because you have all the necessities (food, roof over your head, etc.), and being content because you’re to dumb to realize that you’re not, that there’s more to life. In most cases only when you have the basics, you can think about greater things. But poverty can acts as a VTEC.
