Most of the time, what we truly want isn’t for sale.

But when it is, and we buy it, we feel a whole other level of consumer satisfaction. 

The fight for consumerism ruthlessly exploits the desire to live for a cause.

Maskless Kens and Karens are screaming they’d rather kill and die than give up their “way of life.”
