In this book, we will explore the effect that consumer culture has on our way of life by telling the story of a girl named Jennifer who was born in the peak of this culture, and how she escaped its grasp when she became a woman. A consumer culture is a culture that is oriented around the consumption of goods. In this culture, it centers your status, values and activities on what you consume.
We will discover the history and the origins of this culture and how it spread across the world to affect our lives to this day. Learning how this culture came to be will allow us to understand how it affects us.
Then we will learn the negative effects that living in such a culture has on a person. How it can harm our lives, our mental wellbeing and help us lose our individual identity.
From that point, then we will look at various strategies a person can follow to reduce the impact that living in a consumer culture has on them. Here we will discover how to overcome the obstacles and challenges that existing in a consumer culture will present. These strategies will help us find our inner peace and happiness. This book is not only an educational book on consumer culture, but it is also the story of a girl named Jennifer and how consumer culture affected her life and how she overcame those effects.
