Two Cheers for Materialism

October 15, 2012

What is most interesting about this text is that James Twitchell takes us through a historical journey, he goes beyond the text and deeper level of thinking.I like how he talks about American culture. I agree the contrasting between women and men that James stated although its very stereotypical. A part in the text that if find most interesting is watching television because it make me think of television differently. I agree with the fact that what kids watch on television have an impact on their behavior. Another part I agree with in the text is that Americans want the more complex products or name brand. This shows the┬ápersuasion of why people feel obligated to buy or be materialistic. Why are we materialistic and have it always been that way?The reason why we are materialistic is because the things and it’s quality define our class.
