Quotebook: Benjamin Barber on Consumerism


Benjamin Barber, from an interview on Marketplace, 22 March 2007:

“My problem is we live in a world where shopping and consumerism and advertising are ubiquitous and omnipresent. They’re everywhere we go. I mean, imagine a world in which for every sign you see advertising something, we saw a sign about how wonderful the party or the president was. You know, we call that totalitarianism. But when we have a society totally dominated by consumerism and markets, we say, ‘Oh! That’s liberty.’ I don’t get it.”
