Is this why they hate us? Why we hate ourselves? Is this why we seem to have no real idea who the hell we are anymore, or what it means to have a humane and thoughtful national identity, and therefore we happily scratch and claw and fight our way into giant fluorescent-lit hellpits for a chance at a $29 DVD player and some crappy plasma TVs and a pallet of heavily discounted spatulas?

More broadly: Is this why we're suffering such a general feeling of ennui and disgust and apathy in the culture right now, the nagging feeling that we have no center and God has abandoned us and we therefore simply cannot consume enough goods and technology to try and fill the void? The answer seems rather obvious.

"The Me Generation" is what we called it a couple of decades ago. Just give us our stuff, and keep the rest of the world from bothering us.

A common reaction to that is social activism, but too often it is limited to narrow lip-service to "Let's raise money for ... " or "Let somebody else" or "Let's tax the rich to ... ". None of these do more than cover up our guilt for our selfishness. What really matters is when we personally direct our priorities toward being helpful and compassionate with our own time, in whatever small ways we can.
