Consumerism, as any other addiction - abuse of drugs, alcohol, sex or whatever, is a futile attempt to fill the hole in one's life. The need for creative and spiritual achievement and genuine human relationships are substituted by low-value surogates. It's like eating paper instead of grains. It fills the stomach for a while but it doesn't feed the body.

And while it is an understandable impulse for the hungry mind to behave in such unreasonable way, the really bad thing is when society actually advertises that kind of behaviour. It's can be easily considered a crime.
