Does the United States have a throw-away society?

  • Yes, in so many ways.

    An example in capitalism gone wild, the US is always searching for the bigger, better thing. This leads to projects (and people) being abandoned and shoved off in some corner in the periphery of society. It is reminiscent of a child with a new toy. The project is assembled and even if it isn't perfect, the child shrugs and proudly declares they are finished then moves it off to the side of their room with all the others and goes looking for something else to play with. Eventually, you end up with a mountain of half-finished, shoddy and poorly maintained items and simply shuffling them around again for space won't fix the situation.

  • Yes, the United States very much has a throw away society.

    Aided by capitalism the United States has created one of the most notorious throw away societies that the world has ever known. When we are gauging our economic value by how much has been consumed rather than by other measures, it is a very clear sign that the United States has, at the very least, a throw away society.

  • Yes, it does in spades.

    The United States has such a throw-away society that it is disgusting, and I wouldn't be surprised if it's one of the things that contributes to anti-American sentiment. There are so many items produced for this country that are unnecessary, and so many that are merely tossed, regardless of the technology and cost of production behind them, that it is shameful.
