Ahh, Consumerism

I have been struck particularly hard this year with the rabid consumerism that our culture embodies.  Christmas has made me morn this every year since I worked in retail.  The contrast between the consumerism and the message of the holiday is enough to make any thinking person ill.  I sometimes feel the same about the Republican party’s deification of the free market.  Something doesn’t have to be bad to be overemphasized.

Anyway, Rod Dreher seems to be getting the same feeling this year.   BTW – I also feel the same about the constant TV families.
