Like all the other -isms (paganism, hedonism, humanism, etc.), consumerism has upsides and downsides. One of the downsides of consumerism for peeps on fixed incomes is that though they may want things, they can't really afford to buy much. Because they can't afford to buy much, they don't shop too often. So, when they do go shopping, they don't know exactly what they are shopping for because they are oblivious to the latest trends. This leads to bad purchasing decisions. This is called "obliviousism". Our old boys may have problems, but at least they aren't plagued by problems like THAT!
