EDUARDO GALEANO (ENVOLVERDE)

O império do consumo


Esta ditadura da uniformização obrigatória impõe, no mundo inteiro, um modo de vida que reproduz os seres humanos como fotocópias do consumidor exemplar. 
Por Eduardo Galeano
A produção em série, em escala gigantesca, impõe em todo lado as suas pautas obrigatórias de consumo. Esta ditadura da uniformização obrigatória é mais devastadora que qualquer ditadura do partido único: impõe, no mundo inteiro, um modo de vida que reproduz os seres humanos como fotocópias do consumidor exemplar.
