Capitalism is the number one enemy of happiness.
It is known that we live on a planet with great inequalities and in which the immense majority of human beings are forced to survive in poverty, next to the demand that influences the consumer society.
Capitalism is an economic model that permanently needs to be in growth and when it does not grow, it enters into crisis.
This system is nourished by consumption, if it fails to grow and to maintain high investment in goods or products by citizens, advanced capitalism resorts to consumerism.
Capitalism constantly creates new insufficiencies or demands that by definition, not all can satisfy. Considering that happiness consisted in possessing what is desired, this establishment of new deficiencies, must necessarily cause unhappiness when they are not pleased.
There will be those who affirm that this economic model, even if it produces new needs, also covers others. The problem arises when, regardless of its effectiveness, even if it covers expectations, capitalism is much more vigorous. If people lacked a will, they could not be happy in a capitalist society because they could never pay for everything that is offered to them in an attractive way.
He who manages to be happy is precisely the subject who does not let seduce by consumerist advertising. But for capitalism it is bad for a person to be happy because when he is happy he buys less.
In capitalism happiness is harmful, it is perverse because if the individual is happy, avoid buying products.
Consumerism is not just an initiation to increase purchases, it is also a whole philosophy of life, we often need to surround ourselves with useless objects that will serve to fill gaps and achieve happiness.
Does living in consumerism really make us happy will be part of our happiness?
