Work Buy Consume Die

This picture pretty much sums up how I feel about the world at the moment. I'm not set in stone on this idea, but from what I've seen in my life so far it's the conclution that I've come to. My conclution is that we have been put in a prison inside our mind, through advertising, education and uncountable other sources we have been forced into a mind set that restricts everything we do. The main part I'm not sure about is, I'm not sure if it's a bad thing. Your views?

  8. It's true for the most part. There are moments of magic or whatever you want to call it in there, though, that are the ones we live for. The entirety of your life can't be amazing.

  11. I really love that stencil, I've known it for a while and it is a really powerful way to express yourself and your worries and maybe ignite a flame of discontent within the current societal views... Many people have been pursuing successful careers that they really don't want instead of pursuing happiness...

  16. I don't think it's a bad thing, unless taken to an extreme... Which is probably what's going on today's society.
    I mean, not all jobs are bad, there's surely something you enjoy doing. Capitalism is a great system where the power of companies balance out the power of governments, and where people who contribute to society are rewarded. Consuming? If you weren't a consumer you wouldn't be here on the first place.

    I think the problem is when society takes it to an extreme level. When working becomes "slavery", and you consume what the media tells you to buy, instead of what you really want.

    I wrote too much... well, whatever. That's what I think about it.
