Excerpt from Consumption by JP Seabright, The Green Zine:
“[…] I realise how pointless it’s all been, all these years. Life’s purpose seems to be purely to consume and then be consumed. Where is the beauty in that? The joy? The glory? Where is the justification in all that consumption? I am bloated with the world’s greed and selfishness. I am constipated with humanity’s relentless urge to burn everything in its path for that brief hit of the blaze—the flame of consumerism and capitalism—its degeneracy. How we have all been fooled into thinking more is better.”
