Evil consumerism

Interesting article.

Oh, that bloody Oliver James book. I have another of his and it was quite good (though missed out some rather important stuff) but some of the articles he's been writing in the Grauniad for the last six months or so have been so full of rhetoric that I can't take them seriously. I don't know if the book backs up his claims for depression in the UK and US compared with the rest of Western Europe with stats, but he never does in the papers.

Actually, I'd have more sympathy for him if he wasn't so determined to coin new phrases: 'affluenza' amd 'Blatcherism'. And they're shit phrases.

Stop being such a bloody Blatchite.
