DREAM - Materialistic Dickhead

I was with some jerk who was advocating the Rush Limbaughesque socio-economic Darwinism of how everyone should try to achieve the highest standard of living possible so that they can always buy new stuff, like cars. I started to debate him by saying that by us driving old, used cars and by keeping them running that we're being better for the environment by not contributing continuously to landfills. I also asked him why should I have to get a job that I absolutely hate just so that we could make slightly more money and have a new car (that we still wouldn't be able to afford). I was getting really mad at this idiot, but the thing is, I don't know if he was a friend, someone I used to work with, or some generic arse; I think he was probably a hybrid of all three.


I feel kind of sorry for people who need materalistic stuff to prove they're worth something.
