Our system, seeking equality over its minions, ripped the very individuality possessed by all away in a violent and invasive tactical barrage of marketing and advertising. the Machine, demanding productivity in industry, has tamed the people’s minds into subservient consumer-producers. Wealth is the ultimate motivator. The arts and literature have taken a back seat to corporate productivity. Those eager young minds, poisoned with ideas of mass consumption, soon say goodbye to dreams of achievement and happiness. Their very efforts simply feed into the great oppressor, who claims responsibility for their broken spirit.
