The commercialization of everything

Filed under: The world today — John Maass @ 6:39 pm

This is a review essay on 2 new books, that do not relate specifically to history, but its worthwhile to recommend.  It is about kids and consumerism.  “These two books show us that McWorld — the commercialization of everything — has prevailed, that liberty is losing and that the market machine is turning our innocent kids into shallow, egoistic ‘kidults’ right in front of our eyes.”
