From the beginning of time, resources have been at the height of human existence. Hunter-gatherer cultures relied on a constant pursuit of food and materials that provided shelter, safety and comfort. Excess materials were unnecessary and a burden, one more thing to be carried on the move, and most who lived in this lifestyle simply had few possessions. Once the sedentary lifestyle came about, people acquired more and more, food could be stored in bowls and vats, and materials like clothing and jewelry became more common and a marker of social class.
The shift from hunter-gatherer to a consumer lifestyle has been thousands of years in the making. Humans rely on so much, a constant source of food, water and shelter, that hoarding goods meant safety. The need to possess indicates not selfishness or greed, but a want of security. This is why I would argue that any reversal of a consumer society, one that produces less, is simply inconceivable in 2016. Many industries of the Western world rely so much on consumption and production that humans would simply not know what to do with themselves. The food, fashion, make-up, car and shoe industries are central to life in America and other developed nations. Technology is an even faster growing field, regarded not as unnecessary and excessive but progressive, on-the-move and innovative. Technology is exciting and constantly changing, just like other industries, people are not satisfied with sameness, they need change, and progressive change.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download
Capitalism fosters this change, this increasing demand of the new. Waste, over-production and excess materials are not the issue. Furthermore, given capitalism as a whole, this waste, overproduction and excess has a convenient location, perfectly constructed by the inequality of the system: the developing nations. What can these oppressed people d0? Nothing. Only when developed nations truly want to make a behavioral change, consume less and stray from a capitalist mindset will waste become a topic of urgent conversation. Until then, it’s “their” problem.
